Framed Butterfly Art -Papilo Ulysses Butterfly
The perfect combination of beauty and nature, our framed butterfly art offers the perfect addition to any room. The Papilio Ulysses, commonly known as the Dunk Island butterfly from Queensland (Australia), is featured in black frame measuring 16.5 x 16.5cm. Various races of the species are found in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Solomons, as well as the subspecies joesa in northern Queensland Australia.
When perched, the iridescent blue is hidden by the still attractive but darker underwings. They often fly above or on the edge of the canopy, frequently along rivers and the side of the road, and are commonly attracted to gardens. As it opens and shuts its wings in flight, the flashing of its bright blue can be seen from several hundred metres away. Its caterpillar feeds on the pretty 'Pink Evodia' tree that can be found along the roadsides in the wet tropics. This species is the most popular of the framed butterflies we have in stock and great as a present for international visitors.
