197 views

It was such a treat to see this black Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly feeding on the Zinnias in my yard here on Cape Cod. It is such a pretty butterfly.

The Spicebush Swallowtail is a very large butterfly measuring 3 1/2″ to 4 1/2.” Its overall color is black with white and blue spots on its wings. It loves to sip nectar from a variety of flowers and frequents woodlands, meadows and gardens.

Have you ever seen a Spicebush Swallowtail?
