My favorite is Agrias narcissus
Native to South America. Smile

It's a toss up for me. Really, I like alot of different things equally as much, such as different species of Mantids, moths, ants, etc.

My favorite insects overall are probably termites, especially the tropical genera Macrotermes and Hospitalitermes.

Tiger beetles, phengodid beetles, and robber flies come pretty close.

I saw a really cool site this past summer when a robber fly dove out of the air to nail a Pieris rapae right in front of me. It was pretty cool.
