Framed Red Flasher Butterfly Underside

$65

Only 1 in stock!

Males of this species can often be found in groups basking on sandbanks with their wings outstretched as they sip on the mineral rich moisture. When an intruder is noticed by one of them, he will start fanning his wings, flashing the bright red undersides of his hind-wings. Seeing this, others in the group will do the same, spreading the warning. Housed in a sturdy UV glass white frame, these specimens are best in groupings on a wall or along a bookshelf.

"Are those bugs real?" A question we are asked on a weekly basis regarding the framed butterflies in our stores, the answer always being an enthusiastic yes! Our Bug Under Glass pieces, handcrafted by Kevin Clarke, are always a conversation starter -- in our store and in our customer's homes. All of the B.U.G. works are hand assembled by Kevin, who sources the insects from sustainable bug farms in a variety of tropical locations. These bug farms help boost the economies of these host countries, and also assist in preserving natural flora and ecosystems in which the butterflies are able to thrive. We love Kevin's mission to both beautify and educate the masses about these gorgeous species! Perfectly capturing the kind of exotic beauty that only nature can produce, these bugs and butterflies will add a perfect pop of color to your space!
