Arizona State Butterfly
« on: February 02, 2008, 10:35:56 PM »
My son took a photo of a colorful butterfly that landed in our driveway last year. I finally identified it as a Two-tailed Swallowtail (Papilio multicaudata):

I was surprised a few days later when someone asked to publish his photo for identification of the Arizona state butterfly.  His picture can now be seen on this web page (second picture)
