drawing of the week: tiger swallowtail

did you know that virginia has a designated state insect? i stumbled upon this beautiful butterfly and was captivated by its color and pattern. after doing a little research, i discovered that it was the tiger swallowtail and was indeed designated as a virginia state symbol along with the cardinal, dogwood, and foxhound.
