Hawaiian Butterfly...

This little guy came to visit when I was doing some yard work...He stayed on this monstera leaf for the longest time while I worked around him...I don't even know what kind it is, but I so enjoyed him (her?).

That looks like
Vanessa tameamea, the
Kamehameha Butterfly. He's one of only two endemic (native) Hawaiian butterflies! Lucky you!
