Sighting for July 7, 2021

Hampshire County, MA

This is the first Zebra swallowtail I have ever seen, especially due to the fact they do not travel this far North. We recently planted Paws Paws (their only host plant) and the weather as been unusually warm and humid which are possible explanations of why this species was feeding on the Milkweed.
