This is the last post of my series on butterflies. The other butterflies I photographed recently are the orange julia, the paper kite butterfly, the giant owl butterfly, and the postman butterfly.

The tiger longwing butterfly is quite pretty and from the photos I could find on the internet, the patterns on its wings can vary a bit from one butterfly to the other. Even though the colors are overall the same on the inside and outside of the wings, the amount of orange and white featured on each butterfly can change.

I like the butterfly I managed to capture because it really looks like tiger stripes on its wings. The colorful background is a nice to the frame. What’s your favorite butterfly out of the whole series?
