A digital photograph of a Julia Heliconian butterfly (Dryas julia) perched on Verbena. This one has rather small wings. I am not sure if that is because it is newly hatched, or if it is just a runt. I think it looks cute though.

I have to say this one caught my eye... looks as if the little fellow is either taking off or landing... I like how you caught him in the moment... very nice... lol... later...

Thank you. :)

I have to admit, he does look rather like a glider preparing to take off, or some such.

Wow the colors are great on this. Love the purples and oranges. I could never tell his wings were a little smaller than normal till you said so :) A dwarf butterfly perhaps?

Thank you. :)

No idea, but if you compare it to the other Julia I have posted (and I have a few more to post later as well) then you will see the wing-size difference.
