We had Giant Swallowtail hanging around our yard the past week. This one comes and goes. I’ve heard there were more sightings near Ottawa. The wings are so big they actually seem to roll like a wave when she flaps them. Later today, we had another one come by and it actually played with the one that has been here before. The two fluttered together for bout 15 seconds then one went one direction and the other stayed around and then flew off.
