Flying Flowers

Isabella's Heliconian Eueides isabella

Most likely Orange-barred Sulphur (Phoebis philea)

Golden Birdwing (Troides rhadamantus) There are many variations in coloration.

The Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes)  

Comments and questions are welcome.


  1. Beautiful Lee! I'd never heard of the birdwing butterfly before. Is it local?

  2. Thanks for the comment, Eileen.

    Sure! The Birdwing is local in India, Southeastern Asia, and Australia - just not local around here unless you visit the Butterfly House. We should go sometime.
