Swallowtails are one of the most noticeable butterflies in the Kalamazoo area. They're relatively big, colorful, and they appear early in the season. I think this one is a female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus).

This list of butterflies in Michigan can be helpful and this list pairing native plants and butterflies looks interesting. Also interesting: Tiger Swallowtail Life Cycle
