I see fewer and fewer large butterflies as each year passes. This one was a beauty.  Carol Davis 4-18-2010

I chased this one around the marsh at Garr Ranch on Antelope Island but it refused to fully open

Papilio machaon
   It has a single stripe on the abdomen which is a characteristic of the Anise Monarch Butterfly. Carol Davis, 4-18-2010
