Hi Gisela,

You have rightly said that the wing patterns have been made by God. I have never seen such intricate & beautiful patterns.

Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Warm regards,

Hello Gisela,
Great shot of what appears to be a Cracker Butterfly. I have photographed many like this in Central America where some are quite blue and others are more of a grey color. Excellent detail and lovely colors of its intricately marked wings. Well done!!

Good to see your work, Gisela! Welcome to TN!!
The butterfly you have captured on the ground is really beautiful with intricate patterns on its wings.

Hi Gisela,
looks like a Hamadryas (the butterfly, not the ape) to me, a Cracker as Ron said. In the Southern US you find Hamadryas feronia, in Central America several species of this genus. And yes, we are allowed to marvel about the intricate wing pattern. So did a few hard-working physiologists that unraveled the ways of rapid signalling between undifferentiated cells that lay down the pattern (see e.g. J.Otaki, 2008. Review: Physiologically induced color-pattern changes in butterflies. Journal of Insect Physiology 54, pp. 1099-1112). Best regards, Dietrich
