Photographer's Note

My second posting of an Owl Butterfly, taken at the Stratford-Upon-Avon Butterfly Farm. This is on a special feeding table, with the camera on the table, in the Optio's supermacro mode and with no flash. The colours painted on the table are designed to attract the butterflies.

Owl Butterflies eat rotting fruit and are regarded as pests in the banana plantations of Central and South America. They usually fly at dawn or dusk and, being the largest of all butterflies, they are apparently easily mistaken for bats.
