I’m Batwing!

This guy (I think it is a male) is the black Atrophaneura Varuna or Batwing Butterfly; a member of the swallowtail family sans the tail.  Of all the butterflies at the wonderland, this one stood out the most!

    Wow, such a unique color combination – I am sure the birds are attracted to them as well….

      It’s a bit pricey to get in and is attached to an aquarium but it’s a nice spot to see and photo!
