Limenitis arthemis

You can find more information about this beautiful Red Spotted Purple butterfly here, and it is a mimic of the toxic Pipevine Swallowtail, Battus philenor.

I can tell you that the iridescent blues on the wings have to be seen to be truly appreciated.

  1. I haven’t seen those. We had a dearth of butterfly this year. No lunar moths, no monarchs and very little else except the yellow ones, monarch size. I forget the name.
