i like this one so much, never happened to me to see any of these black swallowtails...only the "yellow version" of them or something quite similar...

Thank you for the vote Barbara. It is very similar here. I see the 'yellow version' much more often than these.
Have a nice weekend :)

Yes, I spotted this on the Canyonlands page. Just to say, I've seen it many times in Utah and Arizona. AND, each time I see it, FEEL like I'm seeing it for the first time. BEAUTIFUL !!!
But ... isn't that just like a butterfly ?

Lucky you. I see these very seldom, even more seldom than the Queens and Monarchs.
