Jezebel butterfly (Delias periboea) specimen. The butterfly is predominantly white with black wing veins. The underside hindwings (shown here), have red and yellow markings as a warning to predators that the butterfly is toxic. Toxins are accumulated during its stages as a caterpillar. The jezebel butterfly spends the majority of its time at tree canopy level, although it will come down to feed on nectaring flowers. This butterfly can be found throughout Southeast Asia.
