A Winter Surprise

While out dealing with the snow we've been enduring, this caught my eye...

Love the colours. And that belt... So stylish, so now.

How do they do it?

First time I've seen one in the wild. I think it's a Western Tiger Swallowtail.  I got some help with the ID from the nice people at my favourite bug site: BugGuide.Net 

On the same day I sighted this creature:

Puppy Pupa. AKA Jabba the Pup.
