Pale Tiger Swallowtail - Papilio eurymedon

The Pale Tiger Swallowtail can be in our California gardens from Spring into early Summer. The adults come to a variety of nectar rich flowers, and are often seen around Butterfly Bushes. The larvae feed on plants in the rose family, ceanothus family and California Ash. They can often been seen sipping from damp sand.

High resolution photos of the Pale Tiger Swallowtail are part of our garden image collection.
