Dead Leaf Butterfly – Open
When the wings are folded up, this butterfly looks just like a brown, dried leaf. Its camouflage is very convincing. (See my previous post – Dead Leaf Butterfly) As you can see in this photo, when the Dead Leaf Butterfly opens its wings, it becomes an attractive, exotic beauty.
The Dead Leaf Butterfly is a nymphalid butterfly found in tropical Asia from India to Japan.
You can get a better view of the detail in this colorful side of the Dead Leaf by looking at the larger version; available by clicking on the photo.
