I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Having examined, it would seem whether it is a Heliconius Doris.

@Marie LC: Thank you very much Marie! I have it on good authority from a biologist that you are absolutely correct in your determination...... ;-)

I'm not at all a naturalist on butterflies ... not his name. If I can tell you it's a wonder of a butterfly. I love the colors blue light emitting! I am struck lantana flowers in all the images that show us the wonderful insects estops! A hug, Adel
