Adaptive Coloration in Amazonian Butterflies

Allison Stoiser

Adaptive Coloration in Amazonian Butterflies by Allison Stoiser Butterflies are masters of camouflage and disguise, utilizing many different adaptive coloration strategies to protect themselves from predation. Some butterflies, such as leafwings, spectacularly mimic dead leaves when their wings are closed. Others feature bold lines that break up their form, making them difficult for predators to spot, with examples including the eighty-eight butterflies. The many butterflies I saw last summer in the Peruvian Amazon inspired me to create a series of illustrations of them. After that, I imported the pictures into Photoshop to organize into a repeat pattern that showcases their diversity of coloration strategies.
