Urania Swallowtail Moth

Seen on Little Hatchet Caye, Placencia as well as on Ambergris Caye and other locations in Belize, in late September 2020. They migrate through Belize every few years, you can see hundreds and hundreds in just a few few days, shockingly bright green. They don't stay in Belize. Beautiful. I am surprised that I haven’t seen the birds swooping down and eating them like they do with other moths and butterflies. You can see masses of Swallows following them but not eating them. Also called Urania fulgens. Have seen several near lakes and fresh water bodies. Super pretty.
