I was at Butterfly World last week and was unable to ID this beautiful butterfly.

Thank you Larry. It's info/pic wasn't listed in the conservatory and the volunteer working that day couldn't ID it for me either but there were quite a few flying around. It's colors, body and wings, are just beautiful, so bright.
