10 of Israel's most beautiful butterflies
Flutter your way through this beautiful batch of butterflies and moths.
Caper White (Anaphaeis aurota)
Unlike the other butterflies on the list, what makes the Caper White so beautiful is not a splash of color but rather the lack thereof. This butterfly sports crisp white wings bordered with bold black patterns, and, depending on the location, a splash of yellow.
"This species migrates to Israel from Africa nearly every summer and it may be seen flying throughout Israel until early winter," Dr. Racheli Schwartz-Tzachor, head of Butterfly and Plant Conservation at Ramat Hanadiv, wrote on Boeliem.
These special butterflies look different according to the weather – they have an outfit for the wet season and another for the dry.
