I got a picture of this Giant Swallowtail butterfly today (August 1, 2016)), a species I had never seen before. So again, something unusual has popped up at Curve Lake!  I did some reading and these butterflies are moving northward. Reports thus far say that they are now found at Point Pelee and the northernmost report is from Ottawa.

Note: Giant Swallowtails are a newcomer to the Kawarthas, too, and now appear to be well established. D.M.
