My first Giant Swallowtail was born on October 21, 2016. I missed the butterfly birth since I was at work, but when I came home on my lunch hour, the swallowtail was ready to take flight. It was fluttering around in the mesh cage, and I was afraid it would damage its wings, so I only got one picture before it flew free.
