Was down at Joplin and south on business and I took a few side roads between appointments.  I was at LEAST 150+ beautiful swallowtails.  Do they usually gather like this, or is this them getting ready to head south.  I got some wonderful pictures which I will post a link to tomorrow, but it was truely an amazing day for me.  I got within 5 feet of some of them, and once there were 15-20 swooping in a field.
Happy Birding
