Part 6 of 7 - Butterfly Watching in Southeast Arizona July 2019

If you've been reading this blog - you know that I have a love for observing, photographing and identifying butterflies and this trip gave me the chance to pick up about twenty new species of butterflies. In Arizona - almost all the species you see would be life butterflies if you come from the great lakes region in the carolinian forest life zone.

One butterfly that I was hoping to photograph was a Two-tailed Swallowtail. I saw this butterfly several times in AZ - but sadly - I was unable to photograph it because they were always on the move!

I end here with a list of new butterflies that I had seen (there were many others that were not lifers, for example, Queen Butterflies, Pipevine Swallowtails, American Lady, and Common Sootywings to name a few).
