A Swallowtail Butterfly for Camera Critters

Each spring I eagerly await the arrival of Swallowtail butterflies.  This year they seemed to be late and it wasn't until this week, on June the 6th.  when I saw my first Swallowtail; butterfly.

 It was hovering above the road and I was able to gfet a photo.  My prized Swallowtail setting has always been when one was feeding upon our lilac blossoms.  However this year our lilac blooms are already turning brown and I have not seen a Swallowtail feeding on the beautiful lilac blossoms.
Bewlow I am including some Swallowtail pictures from my archives for you to enjoy viewing this beautiful butterfly.
I am linking today to viewingnature witheileen.blogspot.ca
I hope everyone enjoys a wonderful weekend.

Lovely photos
The rain has made viewing outdoors a challenge here. I think I've seen wisps of butterflies, but none close enough to identify.
