Enormous beauty

Papilio cresphontes

Saw a Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes) today on my mom's lantanas. The thing was HUGE... had to have been a good six inches of wingspan. And it totally didn't care that I was there, flittering and fluttering and ignoring me completely (as opposed to the fritillaries, which spook at my slightest provocation).

So lovely.
