I cannot ID this species for you.
However, it is quite lovely.
The colours all look normal.
Well focused.
Regards with friendly greetings from Mario in Canada.

Hello Pedro,
Attractive in thumbnail and more so in full view. What a fabulous image. I think one of our butterfly experts here will be able to identify it for you. Well done.

Hello Pedro,
What a beautiful butterfly you have posted. I love the unique colors and markings. Nicely photographed showing good detail and rich color. I spent over an hour searching for it's identity, but had no luck. A little bit of noise in the BG, but this can easily be removed. Hopefully someone will give us it's name:)
