Sapho Longwing species butterfly... December 2010

After much research, I've pretty much confirmed this as Heliconius sapho, which, with folded wings, looks quite different from the view of this beauty with its wings open as can be seen here for those of you with curious minds who might want additional information on this butterfly.

 

The detail is much nicer when viewed large (enter L on keyboard or click the image once).
