Not Just One!

By KarenFB
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
(You are welcome to have a go!).

Edit: This was taken at Buckfastleigh Butterfly & Otter Centre, Devon (UK)

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