Three Show Offs

Two uncommon and a first time butterfly species can be seen this month in the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing. The New Guinea Birdwing (Ornithoptera priamas) hasn’t been flown since 2015. The Madagascar Moon Moth (Argema mittrei) was only flown in 2008, and the Madagascar Giant Swallowtail (Papilio antenor) has never been flown at Reiman Gardens before! There are always impressive butterflies in the Wing, but these three are pretty spectacular and the chance to see all three at once might be worth a visit!
