Incredible macro Robert. Indeed, the thumbnail appeared to be a leaf. I have never seen a butterfly with this unique coloration. Soft, muted pastel colors. I am going to attempt to find out what type this beauty is unless you know? thanks for sharing this with me. To my favorites it goes ;=)

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Fantastic shot, Bob, but . . . of what? Can you tell us more about it? No one's ever seen anything like it, I daresay.

I love the markings and colours on the wings, they look like a finely woven tapestry. It's so poetic and unusual. Fantastic macro Bob. + faves
