Swallowtail Butterflies - Large and Colorful

black

 

Swallowtails are an enormous family group of large colorful butterflies that live on all continents apart from Antarctica (what butterfly wants to live there anyway?). They get their name from the forked tail that many of the adults feature. Their other unique physical trait is the ability, as a caterpillar to emit a stinky defensive secretion.
