My First Black Swallowtail Sighting by Mrs. Simpson

Black Swallowtail Butterfly

While working in my yard, I caught sight of my first Black Swallowtail Butterfly this year.  Grabbing my camera, I was able to get this pic. He was flying close to the ground and did not stay in one place too long at a time.  I am not sure if this is a male or female.  Does anyone have an idea?
