Hi Paulo
Great capture of this strange looking butterfly. Sorry, I can not help with the ID. I have worked through my entire butterfly book and could not find anything even remotely similar.
The composition is great and the colours are vivid. The DOF is spot-on with amazing details on the insect and the exposure was perfectly managed.
Very well done and TFS.

It brings out the iridescence and the gorgeous colors.
The details are exquisitely sharp.
A fantastic capture. TFS. : )

Very good Paulo!
It's an Hesperiidae.
I think it's an Urbanus proteus (Hesperiidae).
Very good POV and details!
Very good colours too!

Hello Paulo,
This is superb creature. Love it's wings, very beautiful. The colourful flower is overhelming the butterfly a little, but overall this is a very interesting post.
