Description

Agrias narcissus, dorsal view, Brazil

Curator's pick

With their vividly coloured wings, these butterflies are truly magnificent! Many species of Agrias are very uncommon and hard to see (and capture) because they live in the canopy of the tropical rainforest. They are highly sought after by collectors for both their beauty and their rarity.
