Sharing a photo of a black swallowtail butterfly in Dustin’s garden. The blooms are starting to fade and the visits from the butterflies are getting less every day.
Even though the temperatures remain very hot, the calendar is making me say goodbye to these butterflies.
I have seen many this year with the addition of a second butterfly bush. Many will return again next spring. Care to guess if this is a male or female swallowtail?
Answer and explanation will be revealed soon.
What is your guess, male or female butterfly?
