Location: My yard in Allenton
Washington County

So excited to see a Giant Swallowtail, this is the first one I've ever seen! The picture is poor quality, I was more interested in watching it nectar on the swamp milkweed and wild bergamot. It stayed for about 10 min, maybe I'll see it again tomorrow. Also saw a Hummingbird Clearwing and a Beautiful Pearly Wood-Nymph caterpillar (moth)
