Butterfly on lantana flower

Here is a butterfly landing on a lantana plant on the grounds of our Langosta Beach condo. To display the coloration on both sides of its wings, I caught its wings while they were in mid motion between their normal position resting upright and their fully extended, more horizontal position.

This week we have photos of Tanazania's Ngorongoro Crater and Maasi people on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Beautiful butterfly and I adored the monkey! Dave, thanks for the message re the comments. I realised it was a Blogger problem. Hopefully rectified now.
