Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus)

  All of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail photos displayed on this page were taken in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia - with many photos snapped in Piedmont Park.
==================================================================
  I am encouraged by early sightings, that 2006 will be a great year for butterflies!

  I saw several butterflies this morning as I was out walking the neighborhood. Most of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtails I spotted were on the move, with a few up in the treetops. This fellow stopped for a minute to bask in the sun and warm his wings, letting me grab a quick photo.

  Not my best photo, but I am sure that I will have many more opportunities as the weather grows warmer.

  The summer of 2003 was a good time for spotting Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterflies in Atlanta. I saw them on numerous occasions and once spotted five on a single bush.

  All of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail photos displayed on this page were taken at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, GA. The photo at right is of a male butterfly, and was taken on 27 July 2003.
