A Few Jamaican Butterflies

We have so many butterflies around our home.  Here are some photos of just a few of them.

The butterfly below – the Jamaican Swallowtail, was found at night. And while there is a superstition about seeing butterflies in the home and at night … that did not come to pass. More than likely it flew at that late hour as it may have been disturbed and was trying to find another location for the night.
