    Hi Jason I believe this is the figure of eight butterfly Family Nymphalidae A species of Callicore possibly C.cyllene cyllene

  • Thank you! I believe you are right, it appears to be Callicore cyllene.

    What a fantastic butterfly, like glowing jewels.
    Your photograph certainly deserves its feature!

  • Thank you so much! They are a small, fast little butterfly easily missed but so beautiful if you take the time to stop and watch!
