Heliconius Melpomene

My research leads me to believe that this is a Postman Butterfly (Heliconius Melpomene.) It is normally found in Mexico and northern South America. However, I found this one among the many different butterfly species in the Hilbert Conservatory at White River Gardens in Indianapolis. I had not been there in several years; Charlotte and I spent most of the morning there earlier this week. I will share more of what we saw over the next few weeks.
