A Peacock (Papilio blumei) housed in a 10x10" frame.

 

This butterfly is black (peppered with green scales) with green stripes, the stripes are actually remarkable rows of very small concave surfaces that reflect light in many ways, which is what makes the bands turn from green to blue as you change your perspective. It's so spectacular that it has been researched in the hope it could help make money harder to counterfeit!

 

This butterfly is native to the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, with a wingspan between 12-14cm.
