Diana Fritillary Butterfly Origami, Arkansas State Butterfly

The Diana fritillary butterfly is the official state butterfly of Arkansas. Found in wooded areas along southern and eastern North America, in the Arkansas River Valley and along the Appalachian mountains, this beautiful butterfly is noted for the dramatic differences between males and females. Males appear brown with bright orange markings, while females are dark blue with bright blue markings.

Diana fritillary caterpillars feed on violet leaves. As adults, they feed on flower nectar and dung.

Print and fold an origami Diana Fritillary Butterfly. For folding instructions, follow the same directions as the Tiger Swallowtail Origami.
