I saw this rather large black butterfly in the back yard. I believe it is the black form of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.
We are having waves of light rain coming in from Tropical Storm Beryl, and I was surprised to see this butterfly.
It caught my eye because it was so big. The yellow Tiger Swallowtails have a wingspan of about 5” and this one was about that size.
It has started raining again…I’ll have to check later when the band of rain clouds pass.
What a nice “welcome home”.
