Very colorful butterfly, taken on the East Coast in South Florida. If anyone knows the name of it, please let me know, because I do not have a clue.
Image taken with my Panasonic Lumix DMZ-FZ20 camera. Thanks to Steve Wilbur for finding the name of the Butterfly after an exhaustive search on the internet. One of the names is Purple Spotted Swallowtail. Thank you Steve for your research.
