A swallowtail butterfly on lantana flowers.
Thanks to @Will Focus for correcting my identification.

It's a swallowtail of some sort. I remember chasing one or two of those across Marine Park in Brooklyn when I was a kid in the late 50's and early 60's. They were relatively common. The yellow ones (Tiger Swallowtails) were the real prize.
Thank you for the correction. I've posted a couple of pictures of a tiger swallowtail and one of a zebra swallowtail earlier, but the colors of this one confused me.

Here's an Antlion for something a little different! Flew into the house tonight and posed for a couple of photos before leaving to find more ants to roar at.

Found a bush today full of small solitary bees. I think this one is Amegilla albigena. One of the more difficult insects I've photographed this summer!

One last picture of the Amegella albigena I discovered yesterday. The rest are rubbish, you'll be pleased to know :)
