D is for Danaid Eggfly butterfly Hypolimnas misippus which is a great mimic. The male butterfly has large white 'eyes' on its wings to scare away the predators, and the female mimics other unpalatable butterflies.
By daring and deceit, the Danaid Eggfly dominates the sun-drenched gardens.
This is my contribution to the delightful ABC Wednesday with due thanks to Mrs.Nesbitt and Roger.
