The genus Caria contains some of the most beautiful and elusive species of butterflies on Earth. Although fairly common they are rarely seen due to their secretive habits, and are virtually impossible to follow in flight. Once seen these glittering jewels of the Amazon are never forgotten.
Known as Green Mantle, Caria mantinea (Riodinidae) is distinguished from other species in the genus, very similar in the green metallic upperside coloration, by a single large red blotch at the base of the underside forewings [1].

Rainbow Eucalyptus, is the only species of eucalyptus that grows in the northern hemisphere and is normally grown for its pulpwood, used to create white paper. But why does it look like it’s been painted?  The secret behind the Rainbow Eucalyptus is that the trees shed multiple patches of bark every year, but not at the same time. As the patches are gone, the green inner bark is exposed, and as it matures it turns bluish, then orange, purple and maroon. This creates the rainbow effect.
