The man faced beetle (so called for obvious reasons) is actually a species of stink bug found in Madagascar, India, Sri Lanka, Burma, Thailand, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Phillippines, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Japan, and South Korea.
Our bug is the species Catacanthus Nigripes, from Lombok, Indonesia.

We bought these two beautiful butterflies at a a market in Charleston, South Carolina. We passed through the city during our 2 week road trip (which was amazing!). Since we heard about the recent news of the shooting in Charleston, we thought we would share something happy that came from this city.
This outdoor market had a lot of great stuff– it was a bit touristy at times, but if you’re ever in the area you should definitely check it out. There was food, jewelry, souvenirs, and these great wooden puzzle boxes we looked at for probably an hour!
We don’t know the species of butterflies unfortunately, but we thought they were too nice to pass up.
