|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This butterfly was in the rainforest and just seemed to pose as my friend and I walked by. I took several distance shots before switching to macro for a close up. I have found most butterflies don't let you get close so was delighted that this one did. I'm pretty sure it is an Australian Painted Lady (Vanessa Kershawi).|
It was also pure luck that it sat with it's wings open as often they close them as soon as they land

Good picture and beautiful species;
Looks like European Painted Lady but it is sure Vanessa Kershawi!
Thanks for sharing.
