[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Notice the eye spots on the wings, researchers believe that they aid in escape by confusing and or startling the predator thus allowing a little extra time for escape

Beautiful composition here! Those fake eyes are really bold on this one. Do you know what kind it is?

Well done!

Thanks for sharing,

Hello Tommy

A very good shot of this butterfly.Good DOF and POV.The details are very good.The colours are well saturated too.This looks like an Owl Butterfly Caligo atreus dionysos.And the owl eyes are supposed to scare of predators.TFS
