Butterflies are weird creatures. Pretty much everyone hates insects, but we also consider butterflies to be alright. No one really knows why, but compared to wasps or spiders, no one tries to teleport away whenever they see a butterfly.
And since we’re cool with these critters, let’s take a look at the most beautiful ones.
The Blue Morpho
Just look at that blue fella – ain’t he a beauty? Or she, I guess. Yes, I know it’s a bug and they’re gross by definition, but just roll with me.
The Glasswing Butterfly
This one can carry up to 40 times its own weight, which is apparently more impressive than what ants do. Also, its wings are see-through.
The Sri Lankan Ceylon Rose
Sadly, this beautiful creature is endangered because it’s slowly but surely losing its habitat. Boo for that, right?
These little critters go all the way from Mexico to Ecuador. I guess Trump won’t even let these guys in.
These are so amazing because they’re actually the largest butterflies on Earth – they can reach a wing span of four inches! And yes, this is one of the very few contexts where something would be called the largest on Earth with a span of four inches.
Malabar Banded Peacock
Look, this is just simply a stunning butterfly. You can find it in the western Ghats of India, but maybe we should stop being average human beings and just let these amazing creatures be in peace.
We already saw a kind of Swallowtail earlier, but these ones are a lot darker and more mysterious. Also, they’re gorgeous and cute.
