photoblog image Flutterby 1

Flutterby 1

I have no identitification for the butterflies I might show over the next while. Anyone who can identify them, please do. This one looks like a Monarch but looks very pale.

Magnifique macro, on voit bien tous les détails.
I have no idea what it is - but it's certainly a beauty - and you've caught a wonderful image!
Is there such a thing as an albino monarch? He sure has the markings.
Mary MacADNski: Bill and Ayush identified it. It is a rice paper butterfly (Bill) or a large tree nymph.
Isn't it just a wonderful one Mary?

It is a great beauty, and looks quite big, Mary?
Mary MacADNski: It was large indeed. Bill and Ayush identified it. It is a rice paper butterfly (Bill) or a large tree nymph.

I cannot help with identification but it certainly is beautiful
I think that this one is in Art Deco style Lisl.
This is in Art Deco style Mary.
Sorry I called you Lisl Mary.

A great close-up!
i am going to go with the "tree nymph", Mary. i am a bit puzzled you saw in your part of the world. mind you i am no expert. an excellent shot by the way.
Mary MacADNski: Funny thing, a search for tree nymph did not bring up this butterfly but Bills suggestion of ricepaper butterfly had an optional name of tree nymph.

I'm sorry but I'm clueless. It's a cracking image, though. I'm surprised that Lisl did not come up with anything.
I have had a look on the god old web and I think this could be a ricepaper butterfly. Whatever it is it is very beautiful
Mary MacADNski: God bless ya, You've got it. Thanks.
the name doesn't matter Mary... it is a very beautiful flutterby!!

As a child I used to collect butterflies, but I don't remember this chap. Perhaps he isn't common in the uk. I thought the monarch had touches of red and yellow on the wing tips. Perhaps he is an albino as some have commented.
Mary MacADNski: Bill and Ayush identified it. It is a rice paper butterfly (Bill) or a large tree nymph.
It is a beautiful creature, well photographed, so let's not worry about its name.
Amazing--its wings are translucent...
