When I researched this little one, I found it had not one name but three!! It's known as a Tiger, a Golden or a Hecale Longwing!! (just the one Latin name though, Heliconius hecale).

I did try to remove the pale leaves on the right, but made such a hash of it decided to leave well alone!! Smile

Fascinating picture, Karen.
When we look at all the uploads from members, it brings home nature's teeming variety.
This is another good example.
