From La Selva Ecolodge, Ecuador.
These frayed wings make for an interesting butterfly profile. La Selva has a butterfly farm for guests to see many tropical butterfly species in all stages of life. Based on my Googling, this butterfly seems to be from the genus Heliconius , which is known for its mimicry among its members. Like Darwin’s finches, their diversity has been used to study speciation.
One thing I love about this image is that if you zoom in, you can see the curled proboscis so well.
i have a butterfly in mine too, great depiction of fray x
Oooh I like yours, too! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
