Problems? Your computer may refuse to show anything other than an empty box. If so, and you are using Windows 7 as the webmaster does, fixing the problem is most simple. Print the image you will come to here & follow the few instructions. In other browsers I presume that you would follow the same approach i.e. get to the 'Java' program on your computer & fix the security level.

Of course you do need to install 'Java' to be able to see it. Easily done! It installs quickly & it is free. Just click on 'Free Java Download' here.

What a beautiful image of a Giant Swallowtail Butterfly! (Heraclides cresphontes) The image appears here thanks to photographer Mark C. Cassino of Kalamazoo, Michigan. You should not miss his fine website where you will find that he not only shows a great number of his fine images but also offers guidance to help others take similar pictures. His website is here. In 2009, as this site must move to a new location, the particular image that I used above seems no longer to be available.

A very large butterfly, 3 5/8" - 5 1/2", indeed the largest North American butterfly, the Giant Swallowtail is found throughout most of North America but is more common in the South & south central states. Known as the "Orange Dog" for its bright orange wing spot (not too visible in this image), the butterfly is sometimes considered to be a citrus pest.
