Jeff Miller was caught off guard when this eye-catching butterfly landed on his finger. This beauty is a male tiger swallowtail; it’s easily identified by its black "tiger stripes.”

Jeff lives in Chester, N.S., where there must be lots of available nectar; favourite nectar plants for the swallowtail include honeysuckle, milkweeds, azaleas and thistles.
