Yellow and black swallowtail butterfly with iridescent green and pink spots on the ends and along the trailing edges of its wings, which had a span of about 4 inches.
Suburban area on insular tropical upland plateau.
Spotted flitting about near my house. Imaged at a distance when it landed on my driveway. Attempts to get closer before taking its picture were unsuccessful; it flew off every time. Each of the uploaded images is a crop from the original. The third, uploaded to provide perspective and showing more background than butterfly, is itself a crop. None of the uploaded images is high resolution.
