Butterfly sighting

Location: my property in the town of Seneca
Wood County

This was only the second time I've seen a Giant Swallowtail on my property, the first was on 7 Sep 2009. The bee was so loaded with pollen that it could hardly fly. The robber fly was feeding on a Japanese Beetle, sure could use more robbers here to take care of all the beetles.
