Atala the Beautiful (Explored)

Atala the Beautiful (Explored)
(Explored June 17, 2014) A beautiful female specimen of Eumaeus atala, the Atala Hairstreak butterfly, photographed in the Butterfly House, part of the Children's Garden at Hershey Gardens in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Although once thought to have become extinct in the SE United States, it is now locally common in SE Florida. The bright abdominal and wing markings warn potential predators of its noxious taste.

You can visit this fantastic place at www.hersheygardens.org. And you can learn more about this stunning species at entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/bfly/atala_hairstreak.htm.
