Saw this gorgeous Eastern Tiger Swallowtail hanging out on my Souvenir de la Malmaison rose.

It’s amazing to me that the not-so-pretty larvae turns into that beautiful butterfly.  (Larvae pic courtesy of UF)

In case you’re wondering, the swallowtail’s scientific name is Papilio glaucus.

Happy digging in the dirt …
