Dynamine postverta postverta (Nymphalydae).
This small beautifull specie was shot as it was trying to feed on a wooden fence. it was touched by the sun and behind it was the dark area beneath the jungle trees, hence the black BG.
I took the shot near Iguazu Falls reserve.
very delicate and beautifull specie. the inner side of the wings is metallic but I could'nt captured it since it just didn't let me...

Hi Oz,
Nice close-up picture of this beautiful butterfly. Well focused with good details. Dark background is nice. Is this a diurnal or nocturnal species?

Hi Oz,
Excellent POV, color and light. Well focused and sharp where it must be. Well composed, and very dramatic against the black BG.
Great shot and TFS!
