'Rice Paper' butterflies are stunning in collections!  Their large wings are translucent white attractively patterned in smokey black and gray.  They glide through rainforests slowly making easy targets for predators to see.  But like the Monarch butterfly, they are distasteful because of the food plants they eat as caterpillars and birds and insects recognize their wings which give warning about their nasty taste - in the same way some bees advertize with their black and yellow striped warning colors.
