Swallowtail Flipside

Since I have been sharing this very cooperative specimen with you, I thought you might like to see the interesting pattern it has on its back. Although the underside has a more buttery yellow appearance, its back is mostly black except for a couple red orange spots on the lower inner wings. I just love that you wouldn't think they were the same yellow swallowtail because the two sides are just so different - amazing craftsmanship, don't you think?
