Also called the Correa Brown, this is the orange butterfly I mentioned a few posts ago – hard to find one settled enough for a photograph. I had given up chasing one about, when this one landed right by my feet, staying long enough to get a few shots. In this first one, I love how the light catches the wing edges during a rare spread.


I can’t decide if I prefer Correa Brown over its other name – Orange Alpine Xenica.
