It was taken around 11:30 AM-in a butterfly exhibit inside a large screened tent.

No PP-just some cropping.

Very nice, and the focus is right on, too (I sometimes have trouble with that and butterflies).

Hi DMJJR,

I'll agree with all of the above. A very impressive shot!

The butterfly is a tropical one - a female Julia Heliconian (the male lacks the bar on the wing), found in South Florida and reported reaching only into South Texas from Mexico. Was this in an enclosed area in the Arizona Desert Botanical Gardens where it could have been introduced or was itfound naturally ourdoors?

Probably something to do with the colour of the tulip flower.
