    What a lovely butterfly, but the dragon head caterpillar was amazing, Matthew.

    This is a very pretty species in all of its life stages - it is the adult of the dragonhead caterpillar!

    Papilio Princeps aegeus

    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Lepidoptera: Papilionidae: Papilio Princeps: aegeus
    Common Names: Butterfly, Papilionids, Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly
    Matthew Connors says

    There were a few orchard swallowtails flying amongst the common crows - interestingly, I noticed that occasionally the crows would swoop and mob the swallowtail even when it was landed, as if trying to get it to move away. Has anyone seen this behaviour in butterflies before?
