Heliconius erato phyllis
Thank you, Bayucca. I wonder why they are called postman, I've never seen them delivering any mail...
Erato would be Red or Small Postman. Postman is Heliconius melpomene.
I like the name very cool!
|There are some flying around here, but they are hard to photograph, they never stay put.
No problem. It's a cool spotting, I haven't seen one of these in the wild. I learned about this at the Butterfly Conservatory in the Falls.
Thank you, Dan.
