Julia Butterfly

This was taken at the Tiverton Butterfly Zoo which is now closed. The owner suffered a stroke in 2015 and was unable to continued its operation.
I really liked this place when it was open. The variety and being up close was different than the other well established and manicured butterfly zoos.
Here is one of my favorite re-edited photos of the iulia (Julia) Butterfly.
