Pipevine Swallowtail

This is a pipevine swallowtail or Battus philenor. It usually appears all dark blue, but the light here made it look brown to black with the blue only showing in the tail area. Until I started taking photos of the butterflies, I really didn't realize how many different species there were here in Arizona.
