I found this lovely specimen flying around my adeniums yesterday. I am fairly sure it is the common White Peacock Anartia jatrophae, however, here in central Venezuela it is not nearly as common as Anartia amathea. The last two photos are the same shot, just cropped so you can see it a little better, and the wide angle shot shows how well it blends into the leaves on the soil.

Wonderful shot! And certainly you are correct with Anarthia jatrophae, White Peacock.
