Many Caribbean islands are so close they’re within sight of one another. That proximity means butterflies—which are a lot less fragile than they look—are often blown from one island to another. Cuba is home to more than 190 species of butterfly, many of them extraordinarily beautiful, but most are found on other islands as well. At least 35 are unique to Cuba. ©AMNH/R. Mickens
