Random Invertebrate Day #5 Mexican Butterflies

Following on from the last Random Invertebrate Day, Mexican caterpillars, today's theme is Mexican Butterflies. The top butterfly I found emerging from its chrysalis at our hostel in Oaxaca city. Below is the same butterfly with its wings open.

This next butterfly was also in Oaxaca, outside the Panteon General, the main cemetery, which we visited on El Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, November 1st 2011. 

The next two were in Mazunte, a small town on the pacific coast of Oaxaca state.

Above is a butterfly from Lake Catemaco, in the south of Veracruz state, and below are two sitting on the ruins of El Tajin, in the northern part of the same state.
