Butterfly sighting

I also spotted a small organish butterfly that I couldn't I.D. The swallowtail I spotted was large and brown. I at first thought I had seen a Spicebush Swallowtail. However, it would seem more likely that this was a dark phase female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. In any case it was a treat to see one so late in the season.
