It’s a Zoo Out There, Part 2

In the previous post, I highlighted one of the wonderful “zoo butterflies” visiting the purple coneflowers in my rural Missouri butterfly garden over the past week (if you missed that post, you can find it at this link: “It’s a Zoo Out There, Part 1”). Today’s post features another “zoo creature”, the beautiful Zebra Swallowtail butterfly. The swallowtails are some of my favorite butterflies … large in size, beautifully colored/patterned, and always such a joy to see! Here are a few of my favorite images of the Zebra Swallowtail, from my rural “zoo”:
