This one was found by my friend in the beginning of March in
SF Bay area. It was obviously second year butterfly although in
very good condition. Very passive and slow, so I had no trouble
making it pose for photo. In fact, it lived three days in my car
waiting for sunny weather to take pictures.

Enjoy.

Three pics to follow.

Looking in Simon & Schuster's Guide to Insects, it looks more like
Papilio glaucus (Eastern Tiger Swallowtail) rather than Papilio
rutulus (Western Tiger Swallowtail)....

Main differences seem to be for the Eastern the body is larger
(plumper), the stripes on the front of the top pair of wings are
wider, and the blue and red on the bottom pair of wings are much more
defined.

Thanks for your response. I thought about it too, but decided
that 'western' would be more appropriate just because I found
it on the West coast. Maybe I am wrong, and Eastern Tiger
Swallowtail is also common for the West.
