Malachite Butterfly

Malachite or Bamboo Page Butterfly
Metamorpha stelenes

Another beautiful butterfly, the malachite is named for the bright green patterning on top of its wings - which I was unfortunately unable to get a good photograph of because the butterfly was so active. The underwings are also attractive though, and I think they complement the beauty of the rose quiet well.
