  1. I love swallowtails. I once saw a stunning black/brown one (spicebush swallowtail) and the blue on it was mesmerizing, similar to the blue in your photos. The blue pattern looked like shooting stars. I remember thinking the blue was stardust! 😊

    1. Aren’t they an exquisite species! So many variations in design. I googled the spicebush – so gorgeous and can imagine an irridescense of blue stardust. Love your description Mary of the shooting stars and stardust.
