Canon 500D with Sigma 120-400mm lens. This butterfly was flittering around my backyard all afternoon yesterday . . finally landing on the orange tree and posing for me . . .

Does anyone know what type of butterfly this is?

    Well done Yolanda … this is beautiful, almost as if someone intricately painted the wings. Have you tried googling to match it on line?♥

  • Thank you Bev . . I’ll have to check my butterfly book again :-)
