More infomations about the butterflys :
- Papilio ulysses
The Ulysses butterfly typically has a wingspan of about 14 cm (5.5 in), but depending on subspecies has some variations in size. The upperside of the wings are an iridescent electric blue; the underside is a more subdued black and brown. The colours are produced by the microscopic structure of the scales, a phenomenon called structural coloration.
- Philaethria dido
The butterflies have a wingspan of about 110 mm (4.3 in), and in Mexico are on the wing from July to December. The upper surface of the wings is black patterned with translucent green patches. The underside is similar with some brown streaks with gray scales. Philaethria dido is often confused with Siproeta stelenes. They have a similar coloration, but their wing shapes are different and whereas P. dido flies high in the canopy, S. stelenes is often to be seen in forest clearings and open secondary forest.
- Inachis io
The European Peacock more commonly known simply as the Peacock butterfly, is a colourful butterfly, found in Europe and temperate Asia as far east as Japan. Formerly classified as the only member of the genus Inachis (the name is derived from Greek mythology, meaning Io, the daughter of Inachus). It should not be confused or classified with the "American peacocks" in the genus Anartia; these are not close relatives of the Eurasian species. The Peacock butterfly is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees. It therefore often appears quite early in spring.
- Danaus plexippus
The monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a milkweed butterfly (subfamily Danainae) in the family Nymphalidae. It may be the most familiar North American butterfly. Its wings feature an easily recognizable orange and black pattern, with a wingspan of 8.9–10.2 cm (3½–4 in) The viceroy butterfly appears similar in color and pattern, but is markedly smaller and has an extra black stripe across the hind wing.

My message :
Which of my lego butterflys is your favourite ? I like all of these butterflys but I have a preference for the Papilio ulysses butterfly as I like the colour blue ! I really hope you like my project and support it to help me to reach 10K : you can also help me to reach out new supporters by promoting my project (like social medias, newspapers, websites, ...) ! Please note in the section comments which butterfly you prefer!
I think this project will subjugate a large category of people as everybody like butterflys; by the way this set would allow a big market as these butterflys come from all over the world (Europe, America, Australia)...
