"Tiger Swallowtail" is a wonderful name for a butterfly.It looks like it really lives up to the name.

The Swallowtails look fabulous, they like to visit my Buddleia but mine is no longer blooming. I have skippers now, they like the mint and other flowers in my vegetable garden. The Widow Skimmer was in someone else's blog too, I have dragonflies here with black bands on their wings, I'll have to see if I can photograph one to see if they match up.
