Photos of Caligo Memnon

One of the many butterflies, which are part of the fauna of Belize, is the Caligo Memnon, also known as the Owl butterfly, the Pale butterfly or Giant Owl butterfly. This photos are taken in the Tropical Wings Center, one of the butterfly farms of Belize, and in the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary.

The Caligo memnon is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. During our visit to the Tropical Wings Center some of the Caligo memnons were happy to sit on our trousers for some time. Even (slowly) walking wasn't a reason for them to fly away:
