Tigers in the Park

Published by at 7:20 am under Insects, Fish, Frogs,Schenley Park

There are tigers in Schenley Park.  They float over the trails and flit across the creek.  They glide through the sunshine and visit the flowers.

They're Eastern Tiger Swallowtails (Papilio glaucus).

They're almost my favorite butterfly because they're handsome and I see them close to home.

And because I can identify them!

    I have a problem with ‘furry’ zombie flying insects staggering around the sky. (moths and butterflies)
