Beautiful butterfly, well captured.
I would think yours  looks very similar to the butterfly on wiki for Eastern Tiger Swallowtail - Papilio glaucus

I think it's a Nymphalidae sp., not a Papilio. Tried to find it on the

Thanks, Alan.

I have had red spotted purple butterflies in my yard for several years
now.  They look similar to female swallowtails, but lack the tail.
