Numata Longwing

Heliconius numata aurora

Description:

large butterfly, about 3 in

Habitat:

tropical rainforest, amazon

Notes:

I spotted this on my way out of Fin del Mundo. I had to be quick in getting the photos because there were some people behind me that would have disturbed the butterfly from where it was perched.
