Nice colors and textures. I'd suggest trying to brighten up the butterfly in post processing - I think he's a bit underexposed.

Nice shot, jj!! His wings are in tact, not like many I've been finding lately!

Thanks Saly/Clint.

Clint,

I appreciate your input. That's why I post.
Maybe I can light up the B-Fly a little bit. :)

A handsome butterfly. Where was this taken? I don't know what this is - I can't match it exactly in any of my books - if this is North American (not an exotic taken in a butterfly house), it has the eyespot pattern of a Satyr - one of the Pearly-eyes or Browns - and may be a variant not illustrated widely.

Do you think he might be one of these?

The eyespots are right, but not the rest of it. The OP can enter it into the Bugguide and maybe someone there can ID it.

Great shot JJ :)

My bet is for Tropical Buckeye - (Junonia genoveva)

Not sure of this species - a really nice photo though.

Where was it taken - this might help narrow it down to species more readily...
