Dooryard lilacs are in bloom so of course there are tiger swallowtails galore. This one is enjoying the blackberry bloom along a woods road. One might think that these swallowtails are suburban dwellers, but in fact they are species of the woodland edge. Fortunately for us here on Deer Isle, that goes for robins as well. We have lots of spruce forest edge and you can hear robins singing deep in the shadows. Every poplar grove might display tiger swallowtails spiraling high up into the sunshine. Aren't we lucky!
