Japanese emperor butterfly in a dome

The Japanese emperor or great purple emperor, is a beautiful multicolored butterfly and the national butterfly of Japan called in Japanese oh-murasaki, "great purple"
Found in woods or beechwood forests from lowlands to low elevations in countries such as Korea, China, Taiwan, Vietnam and Japan. The Japanese emperor butterfly flies fast and feed on sap from sawtooth oak and quercus serrata and juice from rotten fruits.
Males can show strong territorial habit and fly over trees and even chase birds such as sparrows.
I carefully displayed it in a small dome to make it look as close to the wild life, and for you to be able to appreciate any angle of this butterfly
Small butterfly domes make excellent gifts, they don't take much space and look great on desk or shelve.
