After saving the sweet little birdy who flew in my open sliding glass door I went outside to check on Winston and saw a beautiful butterfly drowning in the pool. I used a pole to get it close enough to the side of the pool that I could scoop it out and thankfully it was still alive. It was happy to see me and held on to my finger pretty tight.
I took him out front and coaxed him off my finger and onto a flowering plant in the yard thinking he could dry in the sun and have some access to nectar from the flowers in case he needed energy. I went and got the camera and was able to capture some pics. Then I went back to check on him about 30 minutes later and he had flown away. Hooray - a butterfly saved.
I think - not positive - that he was a male Eastern Tiger Swallowtail but its really hard to tell for sure.
