August 20, 2014: Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Each of these photographs is of a female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. The one on the left is the normal yellow form, while the one on the right is the black form. The black form is easily confused with the Black Swallowtail. Instead of having yellow spots on the thorax and abdomen (Black Swallowtail), there is a yellow line on both sides of the body. 8/17/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
