American Snout Butterfly
Brush Footed Butterflies. American Snout on Mountain Mint. Athens, Georgia. 2017.
To keep safe when they are not feeding, Snout butterflies close their wings and hang upside down in trees. Their brown wings look like dead leaves and the snout looks like the petiole, or stem of the leaf, making them very difficult to see. Great camouflage artists!
