Today at the Brilyea Access to Dead Creek, I spent several minutes watching a Giant Swallowtail that looked as if it was dancing. It stayed in one place for many seconds, almost a full minute once, "stomping" or shuffling its feet as it turned in a tight circle. Then it would fly just a few inches away and start the process again. Does anyone know what was going on?
