Bermuda Swallowtail

I love Swallowtail butterflies and I've recently seen a few flying around our house this Spring. My daughter, Gabby, and I have planted some parley in a pot with the hope of attracting a few to lay eggs.  I did some butterfly gardening when we lived in Florida but Gabby was too young to remember so I hope we can lure a few to our pot here.

In the meantime....enjoy this Swallowtail. It is my latest challenge entry for Freshly Made Sketches #130 found here.
