The dead leaf butterfly πŸ¦‹ πŸ‚

Known as the Kallima inachus, or dead leaf butterfly, the insect resembles the veins of a dry leaf when it's in the closed position. This type of butterfly is prevalent from Southeast Asia to Japan.

The upperside of the dead leaf butterfly is beautifully colored, with yellow and dark blue and blue patterns. Check out the two videos after the jump.
