  3. Camuflagem/Camouflage (by Neiline Cavalcante on Flickr)
Variable Cracker (Hamadryas feronia)
*Cracker butterflies (also called Calico butterflies) are a neotropical group of medium-sized brush-footed butterfly species of the genus Hamadryas. They acquired their common name due to the unusual way that males produce a “cracking” sound as part of their territorial displays. The most comprehensive work about their ecology and behavior is that of Monge-Najera et al. (1998) (Wikipedia)
