Swallowtail butterflyTell North Platte what you think

A tiger swallowtail butterfly stopped at the Bulletin entryway last week to enjoy the view from our front window. The butterfly's wingspan often reaches 4-5 inches, despite a narrow body that is only about an inch long.  

We watched it for awhile and then helped it find its way back to the great outdoors. 

The tiger swallowtail has distinctive yellow and black striped markings on its wings. It is called a swallowtail because it has two long "tails" on the hindwings that resemble the long, pointed tails of swallow birds. 

We hope one stops again soon.
