Such a beauty indeed!
5* photo!
Very good job!
I can't help to identify this species because it doesn't exist in Portugal, my country.

Fantastic capture Pam! Sharp details and good colors. Well exposed also (B/W can be so difficult) Composition is nice too although I think the crop on the top is a little tight. The picture is excellent though. Well done & TFS!

Pam the notes from B'fly Creek and the book from the library say it is: Ideopsis gaura perakana (The Small Wood Nymph) (FAMILY: Nymphalidae) (Subfamily: Danainae)
Wonderful shot, I love how it is tucked away in the flower. Excellent sharpness and details. Another very well done shot from you.
