Ricepaper Butterfly (11×14)
The delicate Ricepaper butterfly is aptly named. Its long slender body lacks the strength to power its over-sized wings in more than a sporadic, lilting flight. It therefore is more of a glider then a flier.
Its spotted, semi-translucent wings are fairly effective camouflage in the Malaysian jungles and since it is poisonous to most predators, it enjoys strong numbers in its native habitat.
