[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A big thanks to Luciano in helping me to correctly ID this butterfly!

I photographed this pretty butterfly while in Nicaragua. I really liked its unique markings and subtle colors.

I see plenty of Cabbage White butterflies here in Ohio, but to me the markings and colors of the Great Southern White (Ascia monuste) seemed more distinct.

Hi, Ron. This is a beautiful composition with excellent lighting, contrast, colors with an excellent depth of field. The pink and grayish tones and texture contrast very nicely with the flowers. Thanks for sharing.
