Scientific name (Nombre Científico): Urania fulgens - Urania Swallowtail Moth

This is not a butterfly but a moth. They are diurnal and behave like a butterfly. They are very special because they make migrations similar to the ones of the monarch butterfly, but in different places.
Taken in jpeg and cropped.

Esta no es una mariposa sino una polilla. Son diurnas y se comportan como mariposas. Son muy especiales pues realizan migraciones similares a las de la mariposa monarca, pero en lugares diferentes.

HI jaramillo

A great shot of this moth , a striking pose of a swallow tail butterfly but came to know a moth it is , lovely shot , Guess this is a hand held shot coz the sharpness is not to the mark on this. Great macro.
