Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature,Butterfly "LOBSTER CLAW HELICONIA WITH MOSAIC BUTTERFLY" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe

The heliconia in this painting is referred to as a "Lobster Claw" because of it shape, size and color. The butterfly in the painting is commonly know as the Mosaic Butterfly. The latin name is Colubra dirce. I have encountered both of these species on my many trips to Central America. I really enjoyed putting them together as I like the brilliant color of the flower with the muted, earth tones of the highly patterned underside of the butterfly.
