Common Sargeant / Athyma perius

Common Sargeant / Athyma perius
A photo from my archives, taken on 30 April 2012, in the ENMAX Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. Sadly, this building and all the main part of the Zoo are still closed as a result of the dreadful damage caused by Alberta's Flood of the Century back in June. Only the north part of the Zoo on the "mainland" is now open - the island part will remain closed for some time yet.

Cannot beat the contrasting colours here ... a fantastic shot of this Butterfly ... outstanding details and clarity too ... well taken and very nicely presented!!

These guys have such lovely patterning on their wings! I can see how they come by the name Sergeant with that black and white colouring, though it often eludes me why some species are called Common.
