Adult male swallowtails are yellow, with four black “tiger stripes” on each fore wing. The trailing edges of the fore and hind wings are black which is broken with yellow spots. On the medial margin of the hind wing next to the abdomen there are small red and blue spots. It is found in the Eastern United States, as far north as southern Vermont, and as far West as extreme Eastern Colorado. It flies from spring through fall, and most of the year in the southern portions of its range, where it may produce two or three broods a year. I have a hard time catching these beauties, but this fella decided to stick around for a few shots. I took this on the shore of Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ. I used a Kodak Z812 IS digital camera.
