Doris Longwing

By livinglevels  
Thanks for yesterdays votes and comments.

Here is another resident of the Butterfly Farm at Stratford-upon-Avon, a Doris Longwing (Heliconius doris) - Clearly the Latin name was chosen on one the more creative days

This is a classic Heliconius species with elongate wings. They are longer lived than most other genus of butterfly due to their pollen enhanced diet.

Beautifully caught, the details are wonderful and you've managed to separate it from the background brilliantly!
Beautiful image with superb detail.
