Mocker Swallowtail

Hundreds of butterflies were out in our sand forest yesterday enjoying the hot sultry atmosphere. This species, the Mocker Swallowtail is known as one of the most interesting butterflies in the world as the females are masters of disguise. They mimic various other inedible butterflies to protect themselves against predators. Photo by Janet Cuthberson
