I started out with the intention to post about 12-18 pictures of butterflies, but when I started searching I was astounded with the variety, the range of colors and the shape of all the various butterflies! I got carried away… but in a GOOD WAY!
Below you scroll down and revel at the beauty of part of the class of insects in the order Lepidoptera, along with the moths. The group comprises the large superfamily Papilionoidea, along with two smaller groups, the skippers (superfamily Hesperioidea) and the moth-butterflies (superfamily Hedyloidea). Butterfly fossils date to the Palaeocene, about 56 million years ago. – Wikipedia
