My wife glanced out the window a few minutes ago (12:30 PM) and
reported there was something like the Zebra Swallowtail we had a few weeks
ago. I went out with my camera and took many pictures of the Zebra
Longtail on one of our lanata bushes.
It's been recorded in two adjacent counties, Polk and Greenville. It only
stayed about 7 minutes after Judy noticed it, and it was gone. Always one
of my favorite butterflies in the tropics, I was amazed to see it in my
yard!

Yesterday Jean Fontaine banded 4 Monarchs in our yard and the yard across
the lane, 3 females and one male. We saw two additional Monarchs, but they
alluded netting.

Yesterday's list from several short visits to my and the neighbor's
gardens here in Inman was-
3 Black Swallowtail cats on fennel a couple weeks ago
1 Spicebush Swallowtail
3 Tiger Swallowtail
2 Sleepy Orange
18 Cloudless Sulphur
4 Summer Azure
9 Gulf Fritillary
4 Variegated Fritillary
1 Pearl Crescent
15 Am Lady plus several others not definitely ID'd
1 Red Admiral
5 C. Buckeye
4 Red-spotted Purple
6 Monarch maybe more in morning Monarchs were different
9 Long-tailed Skipper
1 Common Checkered-Skipper
many orange and brown grass skippers seen while looking for Monarchs
