A Tiger Showed Up!

Today’s post features another beautiful butterfly that showed up yesterday afternoon in our Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) butterfly garden … the Tiger Swallowtail.

This is not the first one seen this year, but the first one that I was able to capture with my camera. Here are my favorites.

First stop was a second-year cascading butterfly bush:
