The eastern tiger swallowtail is very common throughout the eastern US.  It is large with a wingspan of 3-6 inches and brilliantly colored. Unfortunately, the swallowtail's life is very short.  From th egg stage through adulthood their lives are only two months.  The good news is they are relatively easy to photograph. You can closely approach them as they seem to be less fearful than other butterfly species.
