Butterfly by signmeupscotty Butterfly by signmeupscotty
Picture of a butterfly taken at the new butterfly house of the Krefelder Zoo.

Thanks to the help of ~unPapillonNoir this butterfly has been identified as a Blue Monarch. *Caelitha pointed out, that it is more likely a Paper Kite. After having a look at other photos of Blue Monarchs and Paper Kites I'd say that this butterfly here indeed is a Paper Kite.

I really do. You know, it's hard finding an actual picture vs the cheap coloration editing found constantly on the internet. :)
