Idea Leuconoe, also known as Tree Nymphs, Paper Kites and Rice Paper butterflies. They are native to Malaysia. I think this one likes my dress.
The average life span of butterflies is 20-40 days and much of that depends on weather, food supplies and predators but those are not concerns the butterflies of Paradise Adventure Aviary have to worry about. I do not know the names of all the butterflies, like this one, for instance...
Here's the Graphium Agamemnon, also know as the Green-spotted Triangle, Tailed Green Jay. It's native to India, Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia and Australia.
There are a lot more pictures to post of yesterday's escapade with the butterflies, so stay tuned. If you would like to leave a comment and I hope you do, please click on the post title, Butterfly World and the Comment dialogue box will open. Thank you and Enjoy!
