This active butterfly has multiple broods in the Pacific Northwest and a variety of host plants. Males are quite active in late spring and early summer, competing with much larger swallowtail butterflies for territory along mountain streams.
Earrings use the more interesting ventral side facing outward.
Full butterfly, hindwings only, or forewings only, from one specimen for symmetry.
Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
Choice of .925 sterling silver ear wires, or hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires. (Niobium are less shiny, but contain no nickel. See picture)
