Spicebush Swallowtail Butterfly

My favorite butterfly of all. The black Eastern Swallowtail aka Spicebush Swallowtail. I was out at the bluebird house earlier and noticed this butterfly going from bloom to bloom. The wind was blowing but I was able to capture this photo. Such pretty colors and a special visit any time from the Swallowtail.
