The eastern tiger swallowtail, Papilio glaucus is a species of butterfly found mostly in eastern North America. It is one of the most familiar butterflies in the eastern United States. Adults feed on the nectar of many species of flowers and has a wingspan of 3 to 5 inches. The male is yellow with four black tiger stripes on each forewing. Females may be either yellow or black, making them dimorphic. The yellow morph is similar to the male, but with a conspicuous band of blue spots along the hindwing, while the dark morph is almost completely black.
