Thank you, but it was not a wild butterfly unfortunately. This beauty was in an exhibit with several other species of butterfly at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. I haven't seen many wild butterflies other than monarchs and some other common species, but I'll keep searching for something especially unique. :)

That's quite a rarity for California. When these are seen north of Mexico it is usually in south Texas. Well done indeed!
