Pipevine Swallowtail roosting - Battus philenor

Pipevine Swallowtail roosting - Battus philenor
San Isidro, Starr County, Texas, USA
February 24, 2007
In February 2007 we had a mass emergence of Pipevine Swallowtails and for about ten days several hundred of them would gather in a few trees to roost for the night. This is a close up photo of one branch.

Excellent behavioral photo!
Thank you for submitting your images of this emergence event. It must have been wonderful to witness!
