Heliconius Hecale

This is the second heliconiid butterfly we saw at the White River Gardens’ Hilbert Conservatory (the first one is here!) This is a heliconius hecale and normally lives in a region from Mexico to the Peruvian Amazon. Common names for the heliconius hecale include tiger longwing, Hecale longwing, golden longwing and golden heliconian.
