Open wings.  The Black Swallowtail is indigenous to a major part of North America, popular for their magnificent and graceful appearance.  They are frequent visitors to all my   nectar producing flowers and lay eggs on their host plants: fennel (their favorite in my yard), dill, parsley, Queen Anne’s Lace.  The butterflies only live about a week upon emergence.  Bummer.
