Eastern Yellow Swallowtails

We saw several clusters of butterflies all grouping together on a gravel road- and so we stopped to take a look at what they were doing. Did you know that butterflies ate poop? With a Google search, we found out that many species use feces as sources of minerals, but I was happy to see a swallowtail butterfly feeding on flower nectar (Virginia Waterleaf) later in the day.
