Cairns Birdwing

Cairns Birdwing.

Each stage of life
Gives rise to the next
Again and again and again

The largest endemic butterfly in Australia, the Cairns Birdwing Butterfly has a wingspan of up to 18cm. Besides its proportional, pterodactyl-like reach, other conspicuous traits include its vivid colouration, particularly in the male, who’s wings contain vibrant splashes of emerald green. ~ Bernard
