What kind of Swallowtail? - Papilio glaucus - female

What kind of Swallowtail? - Papilio glaucus - Female
Weatherford, Parker County, Texas, USA
September 25, 2014
This beat-up, but still beautiful Swallowtail was feeding on Cowpen Daisy flowers. I'm having a hard time positively IDing it....could it be a "Pale Swallowtail"? Would then be unusual in this area, right?

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

 
Welll...
I would have thought that, but this one was white.....

 
Within the color variation and loss with aging
Butterflies of America has many pale images both pinned and live of this species. http://butterfliesofamerica.com/papilio_g_glaucus.htm

 
colour
it's pale yellow on my monitor.

 
Hmmmmm...
Was white in 'person', with just a little yellow-ish in patches. Think it could be 'faded'?
