Wildlife of Igauzu Falls
|Return to South America gallery Homepage
Iguazu Falls is home to a treasure trove of butterflies, especially in the fall (as if there weren't enough of them in summer, when I visited). Above is just one, the "88" butterfly (Mariposa 88 or Diaethria group?), about 1.5 inches long.
