That's a Monarch Butterfly! I have a returning pair(s) who show up and dance for me in the sunlight of my front yard. My Mom loved them, and since she's gone now, I imagine one of them is Mom, checking in, just saying hi!
What a sweet thought! Then this must be my dad checking up on me. I was wondering when he would show up. I miss him!
I thought it was a Swallowtail. But i just PAINT butterflies NOT id them!Cynthia Padilla, Nature Illustrator. Workshops across TX, NM, CO, CT, MA, MO, KS, Canada, Central America, Internationally: http://www.artinstructor.blogspot.com/
Yes I think you are right. I just bought a book and I pretty sure it is an Oregon Swallowtail
Yup, it is a swallowtail. I have a tattoo of the very same type on the small of my back...love your blog, btw. Your watercolors are gorgeous!
