A common butterfly across eastern North America, this swallowtail comes in yellow and also a dark female form. These are made out of wings from the yellow form female, with beautiful coloration and a lot more stunning than the comparatively drab (but still super cute) males.
Eastern tigers have several broods during the spring/summer, with the final brood overwintering as pupae. A variety of larvae hostplants are used, including lilac, cherry, and tulip tree.
Earrings are with the colorful hindwing only. If forewing is preferred, just let us know. Also, sometimes we have black form female specimens available.
Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
For earrings, choose .925 Sterling Silver or hypoallergenic niobium earwires. Niobium is less shiny and contains no nickel. See picture.
