[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beauty landed for a few seconds while I was standing by the rose bush. I dont't know anything about it or identity, but it was really beautiful.

ID would be appreciated!

Cropped to 800x800, slight change to contrast and saturation, high pass filter applied, resized to site spec and then USM [300,0.3,0] for final sharpness

All crits, etc will be most welcome. Thanks. Tim

Very nice shot Tim,
Very well composed, the colours are fantastic. The exposure is just right, and the details are clean and sharp.
Great capture, thanks for posting.

Great close-up of the butterfly, Tim. Very sharp details, colors and exposure right-on, excellent composition. Well done. : )

This is a nice one Tim. I like the composition and colors. I think its a "Common leopard" Very well done.

I think it's a Ninphalidae. But by the lightcolor of the wings, it's an individual very old, with many flight hours.
For a better identification it will be needed to see the underside of the wings.
