I believe this is a Clipper Butterfly (Parthenos sylvia) found in South and South East Asia. I’m always amazed at the patterns and colors on butterflies and moths.
Many of my images are available as fine art prints. Click here for more information.

Thanks! It’s that bit of lilac that finishes “her” look 🙂

“Sylvia’s mother said Sylvia’s busy…” Sylvia looks quite beautiful and busy. 🙂

Now that’s a long ago song! Her wings remind me of stained glass windows. Thanks.

Beautiful. None of this is random and I’d love to see the environment that spawned this beauty.
