About the design:

This design is an experiment in using multiple shades of a single color. One of the most common monochromatic palettes is white through black. So, I went with a mostly black and white butterfly and then couldn’t resist including the splash of red on the wing.

Zebra swallowtails (Eurytides marcellus) are found across much of the eastern continental United States. They prefer moist, partially wooded habitats. Their larvae feed on plants of the genus Asimina (pawpaw). The flower in this design is from the genus Rudbekia, which contains black-eyed susans, a species of popular garden flowers. Normally, these flowers are yellow with a dark reddish brown center.
