Swallowtail Butterflies

OUR YARD has been alive with butterflies these past couple of weeks and we are just loving seeing them up close and personal.  Here are some pictures that hubby took in the last few days.  The Lantana plant is a definite Butterfly bush and attracts many species of butterfly.

The colors are so wonderful and brilliant on the underside.  It looks like blended colors of clay in Aqua, light orange, black and fading into yellows...
Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
