Drinking Swallowtail
I shot this video of a Tiger Swallowtail drinking from a stream, but I can't figure out why it's excreting the water as fast as it drinks it?!
Does anyone at BG know why it's doing that?

Note: While on YouTube set the video quality to 1080P, and watch the video full screen for the best detail!
