Butterfly Looks Like A Dry Leaf Outside But Is Beautiful Inside

The Kallima inachus, also known as the orange oakleaf or dead leaf butterfly is nature's perfect example of how something may not be the most beautiful on the outside but is hiding incredible beauty on the inside. This butterfly may not look like much when its wings are closed, hiding in plain sight, camouflaged as a dead leaf, but the moment its wings open, so does our eyes open in awe.

This butterfly has one of the best camaflauge abilities we've ever seen. It is so easy to miss. You might have even seen one in your own life at some point, and because it's wings were closed, you didn't even know about it. That's how easy it is to miss someone's inner beauty, and we hope that this incredible creation of nature will remind you how important it is to appreciate what is inside.

Conservationist, entomologist and television host Phil Torres of Jungle Diaries, who spent two years in the Peruvian Amazon, captured on video the remarkable sight of flocks of colorful butterflies swarming around the faces of turtles, truly looking as if they were animated characters out of a Disney film. As it turns out, these lepidopteran insects were drinking the tears of the turtles as a means to get the sodium and other minerals needed to regulate their metabolism, boost their reproduction and ensure their survival. Nature is beautiful!
