  1. The butterfly you are trying to identify is a swallowtail. More specifically, it is an Old World Swallowtail, or most commonly known as the yellow swallowtail and is The Papilionidae family.

  2. Very pretty! Boone Hall is the one plantation I haven’t been to. The butterflies are amazing along that road. I love butterflies!
