About the design:

This butterfly is the giant swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes), which can be found over most of North and Central America. They are the largest butterfly in North America (5 inch wingspan) and have black upper wings with bands of yellow. Their caterpillars feed on citrus plants and are often considered a pest. However, they can be hard to spot because they look like bird droppings.

The flower in this design is one of the many species of Helianthus, or sunflowers, that are common across the prairies of North America.
