Our First Pipevine Swallowtail!!!

Please click on this picture to really see this wonderful pipevine swallowtail butterfly. This is my all time favorite butterfly and I've wanted to get them in my yard ever since I first found out about them. This is the best picture that I could get - it wouldn't let me get very close and it would not sit still! The blue coloration is amazing. They obviously like nectaring on tithonias. Me and Rhonda are extremely excited at this sighting today.

Good capture of the butterfly, showing the background. You've laid out a grand buffet for them!

They are gorgeous aren't they? Your hyacinth bean vine looks great!
