Zebra Swallowtail On Gooseneck Loosestrife (Lysimachia clethroides (Lysimachia))

I just sit and wait for something new to show up on the huge patch of Gooseneck Loosestrife in the back yard. Zebra Swallowtails hardly ever stop fluttering but this one was so interested in nectaring that he was actually still for a few shots !

Thank you both ! Everytime I see a Zebra Swallowtail it's a WOW moment. I'm so lucky to have many Paw Paw's here in the yard and edge of woods (their host plant).
