Monday Portrait: Owl Butterfly

Still at the Horniman Museum, I’m going to take you to the Butterfly House, and show you the Owl Butterfly.

These impressively large butterflies come from Central and South America, and feed on the juices of fermenting fruit, as the feature photo shows.

    1. I wonder too. They may need all the help they can get, because they spend a lot of their time sozzled on fermented juices. I await your owl butterfly textiles with interest.

  1. Ah yes, we saw these in Costa Rica – beautiful butterflies! I stalked them for ages trying to get a photo of the stunning blue upper side of their wings but without success 😆
