I was surprised to see not one, but two, Giant Swallowtails while out today. I was under the impression they were a late-summer stray, but evidently I was incorrect. Both specimens were in excellent shape. I will upload a picture of them when I return home.

There were a number of other species flitting about, including lots of recently emerged ringlets.
