I had several butterfly photos ready to post last night, and then got busy with other things and didn’t think about the butterfly photos again until this morning. So here are the butterflies today.

The big yellow and black butterflies I keep seeing are probably Giant Swallowtails rather than King Swallowtails. Giant Swallowtails seem to be much more common in our area. These butterflies have about a 4-6 inch wingspan.
