Black Swallowtail Twins

Black Swallowtail
Papilio polyxenes - Black Swallowtail - I really like the green jewel like quality of this chrysalis.


Black Swallowtail
Freshly emerged "eclosed", this is when the wing colors are the most brilliant.

I find it interesting how birds, flowers, and butterflies have good years and not so good years.  This year Black Swallowtails were everywhere I looked, more so than any other year I can remember before or since.
