Two-tailed Pasha (Charaxes jasius)
It's not the upper side of the wings that makes the Two-Tailed Pasha (also known as the Foxy Emperor) butterfly special – check out those underwings!
The Two-Tailed Pasha can be spotted throughout Africa and the Mediterranean, and it is by no means shy of humans. It's possible to bait these butterflies with sweet fruit or ... liquor?
"Photos of this species are frequently sent to me for identification by people who have shared their alcoholic drink with it while sitting on the terrace or at the beach bar," Matt Rowlings writes on his website euroButterflies.
