Butterfly Graces New U.S. Postage Stamp

First Day of Issue: January 23, 2013 - United States

The United States has issued a new Butterfly stamp for use on greeting card envelopes.

The spectacular spicebush swallowtail butterfly graces the third butterfly stamp for use on large greeting card envelopes.

The stamp art was created on a computer, using images of preserved butterflies as a starting point. The result is a highly stylized, simplified image of a spicebush swallowtail rather than an exact replica.
