Butterfly sighting

Besides finding birds on my birdwalk this morning I observed a few butterflies and other insects. First I found a lovely cone-headed Katydid (perhaps a Neoconocephalus ensiger). Then a beautiful black and white moth (identified later as a Catocala relicta) alighted on my friend and then flew off to a tree where I got a good photo of it. One of the black female Tiger Swallowtails was laying eggs but too high up in a tree for me to photograph.
