butterfly

Delias eucharis

Description:

Butterflies are the most beautiful creature of nature.Butterflies belongs to the order Lepidoptera .Butterfly – Insect with two pair of wings of various colors, covered with microscopic scales. They are found all over the world. These insects are distinguished by large multicolor wings, which, unlike moths, keep them up during rest. The butterflies feed on liquid sucked in by a long tube-shaped proboscis.

Habitat:

Butterflies can be seen in any natural conditions, on any continents. They are not present only in Antarctica. They are in impenetrable tropical forests, high in the mountains, and even near the North Pole. Some species of butterflies are found almost all over the globe. Many species, on the contrary, can be found only in one place – on one mountain, one island, etc. Better than other butterfly species, butterflies are studied in Europe. Europe is recognized as the birthplace of about 4,500 species of butterflies, of which more than 400 are day-time.

Hi Antimaa and welcome to Project Noah. Great first spotting! I sent you a suggestion for your butterfly - so just click on "edit this spotting" to change the names. The second picture is a different species and will need its own spotting page. I believe it is a Hypolimnas bolina (Great eggfly).
