    Thank you for your comments. Thanks also to Ysal, rschofield and Mepo for trying to track down this fellow. It looks like this is a Malachite butterfly (Siproeta stelenes).

    Excellent composition. I like how the flower buds sort of create a frame within the frame for the butterfly.

    Wow, what a vibrant image! Full of Caribbean sunshine! Great job capturing the beauty. I did a quick Google search on butterflies in the Dutch Antilles and I think this is the Malachite.

    My guess is a Variegated Fritillary (Euptoieta claudia).
Nice shot!

Please take a look at the three opinion polls in the Forums under 'Site Talk'. They are only open for another three days. Even a vote for 'No Opinion' or 'None of the above' would be helpful. Thanks.

My apologies if you already received this invitation in the Main challenge. I'm simply trying to get everyone's opinion registered before the polls close in three days.

    Looks to me like a Malachite (Siproeta stelenes).
