This butterfly has an unique quality about it. It is called the "Mocker Swallowtail" because the females mimics at least 14 inedible butterflies. She is truely a master of protective disguise. This African butterfly is also known as the "Flying Handkerchief", not really sure why except it might look like a handkerchief in flight. The males look very different from the females and they do not possess the ability to change their appearance. The photo above is a male. This beauty was photographed on my adventure to the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Garden in Deerfield, Mass.
