More Black Swallowtails Emerge

It's a Boy!

It's a Girl!

Yes so after four boys I finally get a girl in the bunch. Makes sense, mason bees kind of do that too. What also makes sense is that her wings are so much bigger. Generally I've been learning that the males to most swallowtails just hang out where they were born, whereas females do all the gene spreading and flutter off to new patches of host plants.
