Heliconius Emerging from Chrysalis

Heliconius Emerging from Chrysalis

This is one of many butterflies that I hatched from an egg, gathered an unbelievable amount of passionflower for the caterpillar to eat, then waited, not so patiently, for the butterfly to emerge. This was photographed in my living room. I really like this picture; some people ask me what kind of flower it is when they first see it.
