There are so many miracles and beautiful sights in nature. Perhaps one of nature's most aesthetically appealing creatures is the butterfly. We see a lot of them in springtime, but there are so many different ones from around the world that you probably have never seen before. These amazing creatures will leave you speechless with their beauty.

Blue Cracker

This kind of butterfly is common throughout South America and up to Arizona. This breed of butterfly got its name because of the cracking noises they make as a play for dominance over their territory and while mating. Unlike most butterflies, this species does not feed on nectar. They prefer to eat rotting fruit, tree sap, and animal feces. They are a bit gross for such a beautiful butterfly.

Crimson Rose

This beautiful member of the swallowtail family can be found in India and Sri Lanka. In India, this species is protected by law. It is actually called Pachliopta hector but is referred to as the crimson rose because of its beautiful red coloring. They are truly impressive to see. The contrast between the red and black is quite breathtaking.

Glass-winged Butterfly

They are called Greta oto but are referred to as glass-winged butterflies for their transparent wings. It allows them to camouflage into their surroundings without having a ton of color. You can find these beauties in Central and northern regions of South America. They might look dainty, but these bad boys can carry 40 times their body weight
