Colobura dirce is not very common in our Country, so it is my pleaser to see this beautiful butterfly. You capture this very nicely with good sharpness.
Well done my friend

Nice to have a butterfly-photographer from South America! And to be lucky to see these marvellous creatures(and you know their names!) which are quite different from ours of the Old World. All your shown butterflies are of striking beauty having intersting artistical patterns and colors. Well taken shots too presented in pleasing compositions and with fine sharpness. Thanks also to have had a look at my gallery, it is very kind .

This looks to me like a good example of patterning for defense as the spot at the tail gives the impression of a head, so a predator might expect it to take flight in the opposite direction. The behaviour of landing facing down would also support this, I wonder if it's known for this reason? Lovely sharp picture
