butterfly ID needed

Youngsville, LA(Zone 9a)

This is first post with a pic so hope it works

I'm not good a butterfly ID so can someone tell me what kind of butterfly this is?

It shows up in my butterfly garden box at about 3 pm every afternoon for the last 4 days.

It's been on my Butterfly Blue Scabiosa flowers.

THANKS ------ and wasn't sure where to put ( ? ) on forum

Hi 9x9, welcome to Mid South ! I am certainly no butterfly expert, but I can tell you it is a type of swallowtail because of the shape.
Maybe someone else will come along that knows more about them than I.
They are very beautiful.

Looks like a Tiger Swallowtail. :)
