Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Female)

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Female)
The Eastern tiger swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) is a species of swallowtail butterfly native to eastern North America. It is one of the most familiar butterflies in the eastern United States where it is common in many different habitats. It flies from spring to fall, during which it produces two to three broods. The male is yellow with four black "tiger stripes" on each fore wing. Females may be either yellow or black, making them dimorphic. The yellow morph is similar to the male, but with a conspicuous band of blue spots along the hindwing, while the dark morph is almost completely black. The Eastern tiger swallowtail is the state butterfly of Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, and is the state insect of Virginia. Adults use a wide range of food sources, most preferring to nectar on sturdy plants with red or pink flowers. Cropped only; otherwise untouched.
