Description

There were a lot of these today about 4:30 pm along the shores of the Bittern marsh. Feast of the day were blooming plum bushes.

An interesting observation was what appears to be an Eastern Tiger Swallow Tail having a territorial battle with a Eastern Black Swallowtail. The Tiger repetitively pounced the Black and they'd go at it all around the plums and then settle back down to separate areas. Went on for nearly 30 minutes off and on.
