Butterfly and Bee

The  grass strip  in front of our  house is filled  with flowers. Today I saw this beautiful butterfly was flying along with the bee that was collecting honey. Both were fascinating to watch.

Beautiful Butterfly

The butterfly has been spending a lot of  time on these flowers, but I cannot learn  the name  of the butterfly. Any ideas ?

I have just received a note – This is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. Beauty!

    I’m a butterfly fanatic, and I think Tiger Swallowtails are the prettiest ones. I love how their bodies are striped to match their wings.
