A splendid addition to my home butterfly list today – a fine Two-tailed Swallowtail stopped by, a species more associated with mid-elevation riparian habitats than Tucson gardens.

And what’s more, it actually landed and allowed some shaky photos before it left. The usual Giant Swallowtails, which are in the garden almost daily, never seem to land – or not when I have the camera handy, at least.

This takes my somewhat pathetic garden butterfly list up to 17, but in reality I’ve probably seen twice that without being able to identify the rest.
