Spotted — Papilio polyxenes

spotted

Somehow this handsome fellow found his way into my office (he’s perching on a plant in the corner). It’s a mystery, because my office windows were closed. He MAY have come in as a chrysalis on a vine I’m nursing back to health, which I retrieved from the backyard. Male black swallowtail, Papilio polyxenes.
