Butterflies of Brazil

Parides agavus1-SItapetingaAtibaiaSPBR-2-5-15-ASilveira  Myscelia orsis5-JdBotanicoSP-BR-1-5-15-ASilveira

In Brazil a the great diversity of species of butterflies (about 4.300) and moths (about 23.000 species )

The observation of butterflies (Butterfly watching) is a very interesting form of recreation, not to mention that is very pleasant for those who like to be in contact with nature.

So, we decided to do a sector with records of this spetacular insects by photos and videos as follows.

The records were made mainly in the city of São Paulo, State of São Paulo, Brazil, in the Ibirapuera Park, Sao Paulo Botanical Garden and Cantareira State Park.  And Serra de Itapetinga (Atibaia-SP) and Serra do Japi (Jundiai)  by Antonio Silveira.
