[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another butterfly feeding on a fluid in a tree. The fluid flows by little holes in the stem. Lots of another insects also like it. In this photo some black bees are looking for a better place do take food. One of them climbed down the proboscis of Archeoprepona trying to lick the fluids flowing there.

Esta é mais uma borboleta alimentando-se do fluido de uma árvore. O fluido sai de pequenos orifícios no caule. Muitos outros insetos também apreciam este alimento. Nesta foto algumas abelhas pretas estão procurando o melhor lugar para extrair o alimento. Uma delas sobe na probóscide da borboleta tentando lamber o fluido que passa através. As borboletas são bem sucedidas, pois podem buscar alimento bem no fundo dos orifícios.

Marlon.
