So beautiful! I have just started to see the swallowtails here too.

We are getting those but now a bunch of the little blue butterflies that never are still long enough to photograph.

Swallowtails are some of my most favourite of the butterflies of spring. Once they arrive, one can be sure that winter is past and summer is on its way. I also love them because, unlike the whites and sulphurs that never seem to sit still, I can actually get passable photographs of swallowtails (especially on lilacs, which they seem to like more than other flowers). Thank you for posting these lovely images.
