The Apollo Metalmark’s (Lyropteryx appollonia) underside has radiating turquoise lines and pinkish/red dots. It lives in South America and is often seen near urine-soaked ground, which the butterfly drinks using the “filter-feeding” method, whereby they imbibe almost continually, extracting salts from mineral-rich patches of ground, or from the edges of puddles.
This butterfly taxidermy art is professionally mounted and sealed in a shadowbox frame with UV blocking glass.
