Owl Butterfly (Caligo Memnon), Wisley

This is a crop and rotate, the original image is in the comments below.

 

One of the more cooperative butterflies from last Friday's visit to RHS Wisley where they currently have twenty five species loose in the tropical greenhouse. As in all three shots posted so far from the afternoon, the sun was the real feature providing some epic backlighting.

 

Hope everyone is well and enjoying an exciting end to the week.
