Zebra SwallowtailEurytides marcellus

This beautiful Zebra Swallowtail butterfly decided to visit us during Science Camp. It found the a couple of the boys' shoes to be irresistible (probably the sweat!). At least a shoe is not as unpleasant as dog poop, like some of my other photos were taken on! Of course, I quickly said, "Don't move, I need a picture of this butterfly for my website!" The boy took his shoe off to make it easier for me to take the photo. The kids were excited too because this is Tennessee's State Butterfly.
