Giant Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly - Florida

I raise Monarch butterflies but this time I was surprised by a new butterfly in our garden - the Giant Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly.  I arrived quite by accident just after the butterfly had emerged from its cocoon and could not fly yet. It was still drying its wings so I was able to let it sit on my hand and take photos. Look at the beauty of this lovely creature and all the amazing color.
