There’s a Zebra in my Garden





There’s a Zebra in my garden — a Zebra Swallowtail (Eurytides marcellus— with the longest talis of our swallowtails and black and white stripes, very striking. Pictured nectaring on common yellow lantana. There’s a small Pawpaw shrub nearby, host plant for Zebra caterpillars.

    Jean,I’ve never seen a zebra swallowtail before. It is very pretty. Maybe I should plant a pawpaw.
