Second location of the day…Mostly sunny, breezy, 85 degrees. Bonus appearance of a worn/aged female Pipevine Swallowtail! The individual was mostly all faded black with only subtle blue iridescence near the hindwing white spots and tails. Unfortunately she wouldn’t sit long enough for a photo then flew over a tree out of sight…
