It looks like a wasp but…

I want to share this blog that surprised me well for the first time in a long time.


Look at this picture.


The insect on the leaf is wasp, no doubt.



Even from the close-up picture, it looks wasp but the truth is…


It’s a butterfly called “nokona pernix”. It mimics wasp to protect itself.
It can’t sting because it doesn’t have a sting or poison, of course.


The butterfly is flying but it looks no other than wasp.


The back wings are transparent and the front wings the same pattern as wasp’s.



Wow, it is amazing!


Never knew such butterfly!


I think this blogger is brave because no one wants to approach a wasp. It’s too dangerous.

But he took those clear pictures.
