[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Visited Butterfly World and was able to capture this beauty once again. Not sure what species and have viewed the online butterfly book and would take a guess at a Heliconius Hortense or "postman" butterfly. However, I am not an expert in this field and this one catches my eye every time. It was a cloudy day and the sunshine streamed in on this flower right at this moment of time.

Hello Brenda,
Red, white and black, just like my last posted bird. Beautiful contrasting colours in this butterfly, nice to see against the grey background. Good sharpness and a fine composition.

Hello Brenda
very catchy butterfly. The colors are so exciting and the greyish background enhances the beauty. I like the transluscent effect of lighting into the wings. The flowers too add beauty to the view.


Hi Brenda,
Thank you for capturing this beauty. Beautiful butterfly.

With You a Very Happy New Year 2014.
