Butterfly in Garden

I think this is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly of a cone flower.
He seems to have a lot of black - I wonder if he's the Giant Swallowtail - have seen him once this summer but gone too quickly. They are larger than the eastern tailed - same coloring but more black. This is a neat shot.

@milaniet you may be right. This one flew off before I could get a good look at it's wings. This is the table I use to help me figure out what I'm looking at https://www.butterfliesathome.com/black-swallowtail-butterfly-comparison.htm

Nice, I'm still waiting to get a shot of a butterfly, I don't seem to see very many around my place.
