Lovely the way it is situated on the flower- an interesting species-named, I suppose, for it's transparency?

Thanks Cynthia, you are right. I found this : “The name “Rice paper” comes from the translucent quality of the wings.” (http://www.hmns.org/cockrell-butterfly-center/our-residents/rice-paper-butterfly/)

Thanks for your views, comments and the Editor’s Pick.
