Aberrant Canadian Tiger Swallowtail

I sent this on to John Klymko, an entomologist with the Conservation Data Centre in Sackville, who coordinated the Maritime Butterfly Atlas a few years ago and he seemed to find this butterfly interesting. The pattern of its upper-wings are unlike that of any other swallowtail as far as I know.

Nice sighting Nancy

Hi Peter!

I was down under the Quarryville Bridge this morning and came across a puddling of Canadian Tiger Swallowtails.

This one caught my eye….VERY noticeable and very beautiful

Nancy 🙂
