[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.
