Puddling Canadian Tiger Swallowtails... 

A large puddle party of 19 Canadian Tiger Swallowtails, Papilio canadensis, found north of Debert on June 17.

Two "small" groups (11 above, 8 below) of puddling Canadian Tiger Swallowtails, Papilio canadensis, found near Brooklyn on June 23. The two groups were only 3 metres apart and were constantly exchanging members. The smaller group was actually in a shadier spot so most new members immediately spread their wings to bask while feeding.
