Which one to choose?

I managed to get two pretty stunning photos of this butterfly on the last service date for the 55-250mm lens — which one to post? Both will be visible at Butterflies and Moths of North America and the other may appear here as a filler in the coming days, but this one won in the end. Pretty sure this is another Spicebush Swallowtail.
» ID’ed at BAMONA as “Papilio troilus” or “Spicebush Swallowtail”
