Corralitas Drive: Western Tiger Swallowtail

Photo: Diane Edwardson, February 27, 2013.  I hate these purple flowers; they make me sneeze, but butterflies love them.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

This is another one of those white whales.  I've tried to get a photo of the Western Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly for years.  Got lucky when one took its time in the flowers in my yard.  I've managed to snap photos of the Anise Swallowtail, but never of the Tiger.
