A Good Butterfly on a Bad Day for Butterflies

This morning I wanted to take pictures of butterflies but the weather was not right for it.  It had been rainy and misty, and while the rain had stopped the ground was still wet and it was still cloudy.  I walked around and saw no butterflies.

Finally, I saw one.  It was a magnificent eastern tiger swallowtail.  It flew around and landed in a few places before I was able to get close enough to get a photo.

This is a female, as evidenced by the large amount of blue.
