Steven, I send a link to another ( less active) Am3 user; she is so good with identifying creatures. She wrote back: "White peacock butterfly. I've taken several images of them, always flying on the low ground cover at the park."

Wonderful nature shot. Excellent color, focus and DoF. The diagonal composition is emphasized by the bright butterfly balanced by the dark corner. That long curving stem is another lovely element. The slight nibble out of the left wing is a tip of the hat to the critter's fragility.
