Artist's Description

Florida
Appearing as if they were gliding sapphires, these butterflies grace the tropical rainforests of Cameroon, Uganda, and Sierra Leone. Brilliant blue iridescent upper wing surfaces are contrasted against navy blue backgrounds of the aptly named species. The swift African insects feature very large bodies and wings, which are remarkably thick and durable and enable some to reach speeds of 40 miles per hour in flight.
