Napo Wildlife Center Lepidoptera 11

Swallowtail Moth (Urania leilus) is an incredible butterfly that is actually a day flying (diurnal) moth!

Not only a spectacular size and coloration, but it was also the most numerous species at the Napo Wildlife Center welcome center and fed on minerals both the river mud as well as rotting wood.

Many thanks to Kim Garwood for pointing in the right direction!
