The Autumn Leaf Butterfly is back
Resembling a leaf - the Autumn Leaf Butterfly Zone C
The Autumn Leaf Butterfly is seen today after a long absence. I chased it for a while and stopped after it flew desperately for cover. But should it? This butterfly has cryptic or concealing patterns. The underside is a look-alike of a dead leaf with even a resembling 'mid-rib'. When it settled on the variegated hibiscus plant I took the opportunity to get some good shots of it. From a distance or even at closer range it camouflages as a leaf, thus the name 'leaf butterfly'. They come in various forms with slightly different leaf patterns.
