The Citrus Swallowtail (or Christmas Butterfly) has a lovely, complex pastel yellow pattern that reaches across both the fore and hindwings on the upper side. On the bottoms of the hindwings are two eyespots, as well as two more that are higher up that are usually only visible when the butterfly's wings are closed. Clusters of these butterflies all together are absolutely amazing!
