We've known about this smooth criminal since at least 1758, and is known to frequent the lands of South America. A beautiful species this particular butterfly has been mounted and framed by artisans in the Philippines specially for Bits and Bugs. They aren't hunted in the wild, rather farmed at a Butterfly Ranch, and then preserved when the time is ripe. Images will forever attempt – and fail – to capture the true iridescence of this amazing species. It's a real butterfly, that you can own in your home!
