Butterfree 🦋

Apatura iris, the purple emperor, is a Eurasianbutterfly of the family Nymphalidae. Females spend most of their lives in the tree canopy, favouring dense and mature oak woodlands, coming down only to lay their eggs in the small sallow bushes that grow in clearings and rides. Males also spend much of their time in the tree tops, defending their territory from rivals, though they will sometimes descend to drink from puddles or feed. Unlike most butterflies, the purple emperor does not feed from flowers but instead on the honeydew secreted by aphids, sap oozing from oak trees, and on dung, urine and animal carcasses.-wiki . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 🦋🦋🦋 #insects #insect #bug #bugs #bugslife #macro #closeup #macrogardener #macrophotography #creature #macro_creature_feature #naturelover #raw_insects #insect_addicts #insectworld #ig_insects #insectagram #insectsofinstagram #insectlovers #instainsect #insect_perfection #insects_of_our_world #insectlicious #entomology #butterfly #butterflies #butterfliesofinstagram

So I saw this the other day on my pear tree and at first glance I thought it was a couple of mating bugs, an hour went by and still there, so I got a closer look, I'm assuming it's lunch time?? Right on my pear! Anyway, I don't know why, mainly just to delete it from my phone, but I thought I'd share. 🐝 #insects #insect #bug #bugs #photography #instapic #bugslife #macro #closeup #nature #animals #animals #instanature #instagood #macrogardener #macrophotography #creature #creatures #macro_creature_feature #photooftheday #wildlife #nature_shooters #earth #naturelover #lovenature
