Thank you for taking time to educate me. That's a great idea for ID-ing butterflies.

Karen, I suspect your perhaps in Florida(lantana does well there for butterflies), if so thie is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. The blue on the hindwing tells its a female, males have black on the hindwing, sometimes a little blue. My interactive butterfly CD would help you to ID many of your butterflies. The photos on the species page when you wave your mouse over them pointers and text tell you the keys to the IDs. It'll be ready to ship in two weeks see http://rlephoto.com/CD_project.htm

This flower was recommended for a butterfly garden. Okay, how do you know it's a female? Thanks for taking time to comment.
