The Indian Oakleaf butterfly (Kallima inachus) is also called the Orange Oakleaf and Dead Leaf butterfly and is a tropical Asian butterfly that flies from Japan to India. While in flight, this butterfly has gorgeous orange and blue wings that vividly advertise its presence. However, once it settles it seems to disappear. This is because it is a perfect leaf mimic when its wings are closed. The shape, colors and markings on the undersides give the appearance of a dead leaf. This framed Indian Oakleaf is displayed with underside showing the incredible mimicry.
