From what I can find, this is the Julia Heliconian butterfly. Taken at the butterfly exhibit, Brookside Gardens.

Beautiful butterfly, well positioned in the frame. Perfect focus with just a bit of DoF fall-off in the leaves to help your subject stand out.

I'll never see such a butterfly here, in Japan. We were told on TV that butterflies are disappearing...too many buildings, less and less green spaces...
And the wings are trimmed in black! A special butterfly! Happy you to have found it!
