The Most Beautiful Butterflies: Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly
The Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly is predominantly found along the eastern edge of North America and can add the illustrious title of Tennessee’s official state butterfly to its resume. Aptly named, the butterfly is covered in black and white stripes and has triangular wings.
The Peacock Butterfly
Unsurprisingly, the Peacock Butterfly derives its name from the peacock-like embellishments on its wings: donning violet and cerulean dots, its red wings resembling a peacock’s feathers.
