Green Urania moth

Urania leilus

Description:

bright blue-green and black swallowtailed dayflying moth common in the amazon region

Habitat:

mudpuddling near village home

Notes:

We saw several of these that quite swallowtail-like flitted about while refusing to land. Then we got to the village and found the mud puddle :)

Very much so. Every trip we take, I have a few creatures on my list of things I hope to see. This was near the top. I was not disappointed
