Swallowtails are in the Park

A swallowtail was observed today at Heritage Park, for what I believe is the second time this early spring. The first observation, several weeks ago, appeared to be an Eastern Tiger. Today, it looked like a Black Swallowtail. In both cases I was not prepared for a picture, as they continued their passing through, without stopping for nectar. The first was observed in the Food Forest area and the second was observed along the Jackson St Border.

We plan to plant Wild Lime in the near future to provide food sources on Swallowtails to develop on-site. Exciting!
