Thanks for sharing this pix, Lemon. The last row of the butterflies is the most interesting - really cool looking butts! Cheers.

Very nicely done :thumbsup:
I like the Satry clearwings - last 2 of the 2nd last row and 1st 3 of the last row

Thanks but I think it's actually The "88" Butterfly (Diaethria sp.), and it's a striking red, black & white..the museum specimen is really faded! :giggle:
