Photo of orange Julia Butterfly on flower (Dryas iulia)

The Julia Butterfly, also known as Julia Heliconia, is a bright orange butterfly with black wing edges and is native to South and Central America. The photo shows this beautiful insect enjoying nectar from a yellow blossom. The Julia Butterfly is active throughout the day and has a long life-span, which makes it popular in live butterfly expositions such as the one in Sayn (ger.: Garten der Schmetterlinge Schloss Sayn) where this picture was taken.
