Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature, Insect , Butterfly "MAGNOLIA AND MOURNING CLOAK BUTTERFLY" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






The Mourning Cloak Butterfly is also known as  Nymphalis antiopa.   It is one of the first butterflies to emerge in the spring. The Mourning cloak overwinters in the butterfly stage which is very unusual for an adult. They spend the winter frozen in "cryo-preservation" in tree cavities, beneath loose tree bark or in unheated buildings. When the temperatures start to thaw the Mourning Cloak butterfly reawakens and is one of the first signs of spring.

Illustrative Botanical Art,Butterfly, "MOSIAC BUTTERFLY ON HELICONIA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






I enjoy traveling to the tropics and Costa Rica has been a favorite destination for over 25 years. I am fascinated by the odd shaped flowers and dazzling colors. In this painting I decided to paint the Lobster Claw Heliconia with the Mosaic Butterfly resting on it. I really liked the neutral butterfly with the flaming red orange colors of the flower.
