I think 'Mirror Image' was a better title. j.e.s.......

Looks like mirror images of the same butterfly snapped one after the other to have the very slight difference in the angle of the open wings.

All patterns are exactly the same, just mirrored (even the very thin filament at the topmost tip of the wings on both of them)

Though i don't mind photo-shopped pics , its just not the stuff one comes looking for at a NatGeo site
