Butterfly Creek is a new exciting centre close to the Auckland International Airport that has over 800 tropical butterflies. A tropical paradise not to be missed if you are in Auckland. I am unable to ID this butterfly. Any help would be appreciated.

Beautiful butterfly Pam! So dainty and exquisite and VERY clear. I think it might be a Dryas Julia, look at it's website. www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/ distr/lepid/bflyusa/tx/60.htm
It is paler but seems to have the same markings.
Good job!

A really delicate image, beautiful. The colours and background are amazing. If you don't get an ID and I have time this weekend I will have a look for you. Great detail.
Well done and thanks for sharing.
