On Friday, I caught a my first photo of a Black Swallowtail (Papilio polyxenes), but only one, and it was a female. Today, the Joe Pye Weeds brought in a male. Note the much more striking yellow markings, and much less blue markings. No underwing shot, but I did get a look, and it had the classic set of double orange spots.
