butterfly (swallowtail) June 23, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — jeanius80 @ 5:19 pm

We had a butterfly hatch (is that the right term?) in our yard yesterday.

We watched it dry its wings and hang around a while.


We also got to watch it take off for it’s first flight.


It’s very pretty, does anyone know what kind of butterfly it is?

ETA- It’s a swallowtail! Thanks!

    That’s so cool! I’ve never seen one hatch before, despite hanging around the butterfly exhibit and staring at the pupae for a solid hour!

    I think it’s a swallowtail.

    Thanks! We did see some more in Idaho this weekend. It’s great to know more!
