Isn't it a Black swallowtail? I suppose it could be Spicebush, but I think Black.
Wow, how does this butterfly fly?

Here is a picture I took on 9-3-11 of a very bedragled butterfly.  I keep looking at it and think I should know what it is but now I am stumped.  Does anyone out there have an ID for this poor guy?
