Diaethria (Callicore, Catagramma)candrena

Another image taken in my trip to Misiones jungle. This butterfly is known as Ochenta (Eighty) because it wings inferior part pattern. Is not easy to take pic
of they, perhaps I´m a begginer, maily with open wings posing, that looks like quite different, with black and blue tones.
I´ve used Raynox 25 for macro

Thanx for viewing and comment

Hola Hernan!
This species of Lycaenidae is shown in TN gallery from time to time, but because of colours and original texture I like to watch it every time. Very nice composition with good timing (I like that your butterfly is drinking water and minerals :>).
Best greetings from Poland my Friend!
Friendly yours,

Ciao Hernan,

A beautiful shot with an amazing sharpness and depth of field. The fantastic details of the insect are very well captured and the contrast in colors with the soil is perfect to the eye! Great shot.

Hola Hernan yo de nuevo!, muy buena foto, muy bien la nitidez los colores, el punto de vista!!!.
Esta mariposa tambien tiene su version con el nro. 88 ja ja, en general siempre trato de encontrar un significado a las figuras que tienen los insectos cualquiera de ellos; me acuerdo cuando vi por primera vez un 80 y 88, en un viaje a misiones me quede asombrado!.
