Giant Swallowtail Butterfly

Last week we were lucky enough to catch of glimpse of this huge butterfly feeding in the  phlox. Richard grabbed his camera and managed to grab a few shots. It's the Giant Swallowtail butterfly, usually rare in these parts, but with the hot summer and warm winds, some of these beauties flew further north than usual this year. Lucky us.
