The Aurora Borealis Butterfly (Superb Leafwing) is incredible! The colors of the forewings are so intensely saturated that it's almost like it's under a blacklight! There is a slight iridescence to the colors, making the pink go from yummy bubblegum to burning hot pink, and the blue is almost ultraviolet. The underside of the wings is quite different but still interesting, which looks like a dried leaf. The Aurora Borealis Butterfly is a must-see in person!
