Zebra Swallowtail

Zebra Swallowtail (Asclepias tuberosa)

I was SO delighted today when this beautiful Zebra Swallowtail came into my garden and actually stopped fluttering long enough for me to get a few non-blurry pics ! They're usually so fast that you can't get near them BUT there is one thing that they'll stop for and that's BUTTERFLY Weed !! (Asclepias tuberosa)
