Damn you and your butterfly fabulousness. Those are awesome pix, Peter.

Thanks much. I haven't had much luck photographing in the field, but I'm pretty happy with my attempts in the zoo. I figure that if I keep practicing, I may actually learn something.

I got inordinately excited about that one too, to the level of "OMG, his wings are see-through!"

'Welcome. Glad to inadvertently help. ^_^

IT's a particularly phenomenal one. Yay!

I think it's South American, but I've not verified that yet. Still working on most of the id's with the exception of the larva (which is almost certainly a monarch...)

I also really like the white leaping cat marking on the wing of the final shot. (Seriously.... turn your head to the left and think, "Thundercats.")

If you are in Venice and cannot take a beautiful picture, there is a problem. ;P

I will recommend a butterfly house for any time that you start getting itchy about cold weather. They're super warm and there are all sorts of living things flitting about you.

Oh, wow, Peter, these are lovely! The third from the bottom, are its wings mostly transparent or are they really just tips? That first one made me sit forward and stare.

The wings are solid, but largely transparent. There are a few of that type native to South America. Still haven't id'ed this, though.
