Butterfly keeper Heather Prince holds a newly emerged atlas moth. The moth has a wingspan of 30 centimeters. Atlas moths are the largest moth species in the world, but despite their grandeur, they live for only about one week.
Bhutanitis lidderdalii | This amazing insect, also know as the Bhutan Glory, is a member of the swallowtail family. Those beautiful hindwing tails are typical of many members of the group, although the Bhutan Glory is considerably more exotic-looking than most swallowtails. It's thought that the bright, flapping hind wings draw the attention of predators, leading them to strike at the tails. The butterfly can survive quite well without the ends of its wings.
