Heliconius clysonimus (I.D. Courtesy of Danny Burk)

Another member of the genus Helioconius, with the species I.D. by Danny Burk once again. As with the other, these were difficult to photograph with open wings, as they spent a considerable amount of time perched with their leaves vertical. Canon 100-400 at 400 mm, 20 mm extension, ISO 400, f/16, 1/200 second (manual mode), 550EX Flash EV +1/3, monopod with Arca-Swiss ballhead and Wimberley Sidekick.
