This is called IO MOTH and I consider the Queen (all yellow) and the King of the MOTH. This butterfly have a particular design on the wing: two big eyes, that show when think is in dangerous situation, so permit to scare the enemy and get some precious seconds to fly away. The world of the butterfly is amazing and put the real nature in my art for me its an unbelievable experience all the time.
