Summer is a time of activity for butterflies.  Visit a garden or meadow and you will probably see butterflies fluttering about, actively feeding on nectar.  The swallowtail butterfly is so named because of the shape of its wings; they resemble the tail of the swallow bird.  The butterfly in this photo is a male Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.  The yellow color with the black stripes considered to be tiger-like.  This photo was taken in Virginia where it is the state insect.  It is also the state butterfly in Delaware, Georgia, and South Carolina.

What kind of butterflies have you seen this summer?  Do you have a garden that attracts butterflies?

To see other butterfly images, check out a brief slide show here and butterfly words here.
