1. Attacus atlas.
This insect is considered to be the largest night butterfly. Its front wings look like snakes - this peculiarity repels animals. Thus butterflies survive.
There's one more distinctive feature of these butterflies - their mouth-parts are undeveloped. How do they eat then? They don't. Their life is short (one - two weeks) and they exist due to the fat pool accumulated in the cocoon.
2. The Queen Alexandra's birdwing.
This butterfly is also large, but active only at daytime. It has the wingspan of about 32 centimeters. The Queen Alexandra's birdwing is one of the rarest types of butterflies. You can find it in New Guinea. Male's wings are bright green of blue, while female's wings are black, yellow or cream colored.

This insect is a master of masking. The upper side of the wings is bright colored, while the lower side simulates leaves. You can notice this butterfly flying, but you can hardly find it among "the other" leaves.
6. Parides eurimedes.
This is a very beautiful and active black butterfly with red and sky blue stains on the wings. Its size is medium.

This butterfly is quite small. The construction of the wings makes us believe that this butterfly is shining. If you look at a sitting morpho butterfly you would think that its wings are blue with the black border, but it's not true. The morpho butterflies are iridescent in the sunlight.

Apparently, the European peacock inhabits Europe and the subtropical region of Eurasia. There are lots of such butterflies in Germany. The butterfly got its name due to the resemblance with the tail of a peacock.
