Pale Swallowtail - Papilio eurymedon
A Pale Swallowtail posing streamside on a trail in Big Tujunga Canyon, San Gabriels. May 16, 2006. This is all I ask of our butterflies: be fresh and stay still.

This Pale Swallowtail was also near a stream, but in the Santa Rosas above Palm Desert. May 14, 2006. The left wing was a bit malformed.
