what a beauty. At first I thought the butterfly was on a basil leaf but then the other leaves don't seem to be. I'm not familiar with the names of many butterflies but this one is definitely unique.

It is beautiful...I gave a quick glance trying to find out what kind of butterfly it is but did not see it. But just spent a couple minutes. I hope to remember to look more at a later time.

BEAUTIFUL image, Steven!! You know how much I LOVE butterflies!! I believe this is a Doris Longwing (Heliconius doris) - and if so- I also know they tend not to hold still - so kudos to you for this shot!
