Hola Carlos,
a beautiful and sharp picture of a species which to my knowledge has not yet been shown before at TN.
The dark blue colour of the wings is nicely reproduced.
The species shown belongs to the
- genus: Actinote
- Nymphalidae, Acraeinae

Most probably it is a male of Actinote ozomene.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Carlos,
A perfect macro shot of this butterfly with excelent details, lighting and framing. Composition is also great. TFS and regards,

Hello Carlos,
I am sure Peter is right about this being a species from Actinote, which contains almost 50 species in Central and South America. I have a small book called Butteflies of South America by Bernard d'Abrera and on page 223 he illustrates a female of Actinote amida which looks remarkably similar to your pictured individual. He also illustrates a male of ozomene and this has a post-discal red band on the forewings as well as the red basal area. However, with such limited reference material, I cannot be 100% certain that your picture shows amida. Thanks for this fine picture of an unusual subject.

Hola Carlos,
que bueno encontrar tus macros nuevamente. Sigo sorprendida por los colores de las mariposas y los bichos...
Muy buena foto: buen POV, foco y colores. Tal vez un poco más de luz sobre el cuerpo y el ala izquierda resaltaría más ese azul.
gracias por compartir!
que tengas muy buen dia!

Hello Carlos,
Very interesting shot with nice colours and good sharpness.
Nice background and frame - thanks


My little guide,"Mariposas Comunes de la Cordillera Central de Colombia" shows it as Actinote ozomene present in all three mountain ranges. Very nice photoand good for identification
