Giant Swallowtail

Papilio cresphontesGiant Swallowtail, Papilio cresphontes

This butterfly lives up to it’s name; it’s huge! With a wingspread of over 6-inches it’s the largest butterfly in all of North America. I photographed this one yesterday on a Butterfly Weed close to the front door of of the Prairie Garden Trust visitor center.
