Yellow Swallowtail

This Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly was foraging at the edge of a lake during a rain shower this weekend.

Swallowtail's host plants are the members of the carrot family, including dill, parsley, and hemlock. The butterflies will often congregate on scat for salts and minerals.

This one, I think, is after a drink.
