Species: Malachite Butterfly | Location: Danaus Nature Center, Costa Rica
While visiting Costa Rica with Nat Hab, we stopped at Ecocentro Danaus on a very overcast day. Part of the nature center is a butterfly enclosure. I walked around trying to find some interesting butterflies. This one sat fairly close to the pathway and allowed me to take its picture before fluttering off.

About The Photographer
I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
