There is an abundance of Charaxes in the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing thanks to a recent shipment containing 229 individuals of eight different species from this genus. They are a favorite butterfly of photographers because they don’t move as much as other butterflies and tolerate visitors getting close. You can even borrow one of the magnifying glasses in the Butterfly Wing to examine them closely.
