Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

The Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly is a common site in my yard.  They are especially attracted to the Joe Pye Weed.
Male and Female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.

This is the black form of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail female.  The female can also be yellow instead of black.

Incredible! I love the colors and they were both together in the same shot...amazing. I didn't know that these butterflies could be found in Wisconsin? Beautiful.
