Goatweed Leafwing
Anaea andria
The Goatweed Leafwing (Anaea andria) is a common butterfly in the south central United States. The upper wings are a bright orange, but when perched, such as the one shown here, the dull colored underwings provide an effective camouflage. The first shot on this page was taken in March, 2008, in Austin, Travis Co., Texas, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender and flash.
The next 2 shots shown here were taken in Austin, Travis Co., Texas, in March, 2009, with the same gear as above. The 2nd shot shows part of the bright orange upper wing of this species.
The next 2 shots of Goatweed Leafwing were taken in Austin, Travis Co., Texas in March, 2010, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and an EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash.
