Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly

I saw this butterfly enjoying this tree in Wartrace, TN for quite a while. Does anyone know what kind of tree it is?

I can't say I'd ever noticed this type of butterfly when I first saw it. When I think of common butterflies, I think of the Monarch. It's larger and more colorful than a monarch. But, I suppose it's one of those things that you don't notice until you start thinking about it. I've seen a ton of these since this photo was taken. I saw five at at time once a couple of weeks later.
