Amazing coloured Sapphire
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a "Sapphire" butterfly (Doxocopa laurentia Godart 1824). This is a male (they have sexual dichromatism, being females brown, with a white&yellow band. Males blue colour parts is really a special effect. They have prismatics scales that reflect only blue part of light spectrum (depending about the angle of seeing). So, this shot was made in the Atlantic forest in San Rafael national park. This is a common diurnal butterfly.|
