Wildlife Photo: The Blue Admiral Butterfly
The Latin name for this brightly colored butterfly is Kaniska canace.
Ruri Tateha (ルリタテハ) is what it's called in Japan.
This photo was taken along HWY 104 as, I was walking to the Kin Dam.
These are some tricky characters to find with a camera.
When they close their wings, they resemble a dead leaf.
So, I call them Master of Disguise butterflies.
