Beautiful image.
It could be a Papaya which is a host plant for butterflies.

I can't identify the plant, but your first banner is beautiful. Congratulations!

It's 'Chaya' I think. Also known as Tree Spinach. Cnidoscolus aconitifolius is the correct botanical name.

Thank you Hetty, Jean, and Greene! I'll go research this a bit more now.... I have friends and family in Florida, and one of them lives in Kendall, Miami. Their home is situated inside a grove of avocado trees.There's peacocks running loose and bee hives up and down the street. I just love the diversity of the subtropical plants and creatures to be found there!

Pretty distinctive plant once you're familiar with it.
