[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The genus Euselasia belongs to the neotropical family Riodinidae. This one was photographed resting and suddenly it took off right in the moment I took the shot. lucky it was still in the frame and only a small cropping was needed to center it.
This specie doesn't appear in the butterflies fieldguide of Misiones Province so I have no idea the species name (any help will be most welcome).

Ciao Oz,
complimenti per essere riuscito a fissare questo istante!
Una foto veramente magnifica sotto tutti i punti di vista.

This is a brilliant snap shot, Oz.
The movement of the butterfly lifting off is well captured.
The butterfly is exotic too.
Thanks for sharing and regards.

Hello Oz,
What a cute picture. You were very lucky! And you got perfect sharpness and very nice colour-combination. Looks a little bit like a Copper-butterfly.

Hello Oz,
so you are the guy with this very special, masterful shot. How I envy you, I never succeeded with flying butterflies. What a remarkable picture. I congratulate you and thank you for the presentation.
My best regards,
