She is stunning! Wonderful images, Ray!
Ray: Yes...a stunner, Elizabeth, and hard to catch.
i recall seeing butterflies trying to get some moisture from damp earth, i wonder what is this beauty trying to get from the withered leaves, Ray.
Ray: There is some over-ripe, fallen StarFruit on the ground, Ayush, and She is after the juice in that.
J'aime beaucoup les tâches bleues et blanches sur ses ailes.
Ray: Tu ne vois cette couleur brillante que lorsque ses ailes sont ouvertes, Martine.

What a wonderful looking thing it is!
Ray: It is a most unusual-looking butterfly, Chris, and I have been trying for some time to capture it.

Well, to me, I have seen prettier butterflies in this series but the beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Ray: Yes...I think we each have our views on this, Alan, and this is a good thing.
This butterfly reminds me of how the real beauty is INSIDE of us, Ray!
Ray: I do not understand your comment, Ginnie...perhaps my re-modeled brain is struggling a little!

She looks very big as well as beautiful. Is she one of your largest butterflies?
Ray: I would describe this one as medium size, Lisl, as there are a few that are much bigger.
Merci , c'est vraiment superbe !!
Ray: J'ai été très heureux de faire ces clichés, Claudine.
You were right I love this one!
Ray: I have been trying for some time to get decent shots of it, Mill.

I can tell that this is a beauty, Ray. I love those "blue eyes"...
Ray: It certainly grabs one's attention, Astrid.

Wow, that’s a stunner Ray.
Ray: I think so, Chad!
It is always surprising how different undersides look. smile
Ray: This is true, Mary!
Quite the star!
Ray: I was happy to finally get some shots that show it off, Tom.

Beautiful indeed. If she keeps her wings folded, she can get lost in that dried vegetation.
Ray: Yes...her camouflage works well, Louis.
