A Leaf? or a Butterfly?

by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
Just one more reason that nature is amazing: here’s the Orange Dead Leaf butterfly (Kallima inachus). Perfect mimic for a dead leaf. Wish I could catch this one with his wings open — then you’d see bright orange and purple-blue. Don’t forget, Butterflies LIVE! closes in just a few short weeks, on Oct. 12th.
