Cracker butterfly – Hamadryas amphinome
Cracker butterflies (also called Calico butterflies) are a neotropical group of medium-sized brush-footed butterfly species of the genus Hamadryas. They acquired their common name due to the unusual way that males produce a “cracking” sound as part of their territorial displays. The most comprehensive work about their ecology and behavior is that of Monge-Najera et al.

My greatest passion in photography is to capture the wonderful Butterfly. I hope you will enjoy my photos of Butterflies as much I do to watch them and to catch their beauty with my photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 350D with a Canon Close-Up lens 250D. Thank you so much for your visit, the kind comments, the great support and the Love for Butterflies!
Butterfly Kisses, Johanna
