[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Callicore hydaspes (Nymphalidae), one of the common small Nymphalids in this area of the tropics. common in north Argentina and neighboring countries. this specie is flying near the ground drinking from moist rich soil and other wet sufaces.
its inner wings are much more beautifull with shining colors but unfortunately it rests and feeds with its wings folded. guess it is a bit shy... but smart. here in the shade it can escape the 40C temperature outside although moisture remains almost 100%. not very pleasent for the laying muddy poor photographer next to it.

Hallo Oz,
excellent picture of this beauty. The flash just high-lights the peculiarities of the wing colours which are partially iridescent.
