This week I made an animated chart of butterflies! These are all butterflies that you can find throughout North America, and I picked the 42 that I thought were the most colorful and unique. 

You can check out the full sized GIF here or pick up a poster for your room here :)

Pretty psyched to finally have found one of these Bad-wings (Dyspteris abortivaria) in my yard last night. Bugguide.net says the name comes from the fact that their stubby little hindwings make it really difficult to pin specimens. I think it makes them look cute .

THESE ARE ALL NO GOOD, TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, VERY BAD THINGS.

Which is to say that they are NOT mantispids, so fuck ‘em.

Which one is the real one
