The beautiful markings on this crimson Swallowtail Butterfly are very distinct and makes this butterfly very easy to recognize when seen flying throughout Victoria Butterfly Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia. Unique shapes of the wings on this swallowtail butterfly are another way to distinguish which species of butterfly this is.

The long green branch that extends from the top of this plant is a favorite spot at the Victoria Butterfly Gardens that this Crimson Swallowtail Butterfly likes to hang out. Here it clings to the plant by its antennas as it drinks all the good juices from the tips of this flowering tropical plant.
