This neato butterfly landed on my boot and stayed there licking it for nearly 20 minutes! I have been wanting to look at one of these close up because it is one of those butterflies that has a totally different persona on the inside, then it does on the outside. (Just like some people!)
When sunning itself it has brilliant deep orange wings with black spots on it, the jagged edges make it even more striking - but when it closes it's wings it suddenly transforms into something akin to tree bark.
It's like an optical illusion! It's legs even look like little dead branches stripped of bark. I <3 this butterfly, it's reversible. :)
Anyone know it's scientific name and info?
