When we film at beautiful spots like Tatama National Park in Colombia’s rainforest, something amazing can happen.
At the park, Thomas Marent and David Weiller took amazing pictures of a beautiful and special butterfly.
The butterfly’s wings have a pattern on them that looks like the number 88, which is a lucky number.
In Chinese culture, 88 is considered to be a symbol of good luck.
Tutorming states that 8 is a lucky number in Chinese culture because it sounds like “wealth, fortune, and prosper” (發). Multiples of 8, like 88, sound like “double happiness” (囍).
This video shows a butterfly called an Anna’s Eighty-Eight or a Diaethria anna.
The Anna’s Eighty-Eight butterflies get their name because they have markings on their wings that look like a number 88.
The markings on this butterfly aren’t very clear or look like a lucky number, unlike the one below.
iNaturalist says that the Diaethria anna butterfly lives in damp areas in Central America.
