I think this is a Spicebush Swallowtail, but I'm not completely sure. Taken at the same location as the shots from the last few days. I tried to approach my shooting a bit differently today. Instead of rotating with the butterflies 180 degrees around the sunny side of the bush, I stood off to the side and tried to catch the wings with some back light. I had mixed results. Less shots in the same amount of time and just not 'the' shot today either I don't think.
I did some pp to this shot with Color Efex Pro. Here's the original.
