Swallowtail on phlox!

We're approaching the end of the gardening season. The phlox are in bloom and the birds, butterflies and bees are amazing. This is an interesting species. Their wings are so delicate, and all you really see is the yellow as they fly. I'm so grateful to see this one visiting my garden beside the goldfish pond.

Very cool! I haven't seen an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail in my gardens this year.
