[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pienso que es una mariposa muy inquieta, sin embargo, esta fue muy benévola conmigo, aceptó posar varias veces en distintos lugares, creo que le gusta camuflajearse, prefiere posar sobre los colores claros como sus alas, tal vez para simular una lechuza o buho.
Lamentablemente no quiso abrir sus alas, para captarla de frente y mostrarnos su belleza azul...

Thank you very much "batu"...i try complete the information...soon...

Hola Ninfa,
this is a very brilliant and sharp picture of the butterfly. Focus, colours and point of view - all is perfect.
The species shown is not a Morpho butterfly but belongs to the
genus Caligo of the Nymaphalidae subfamily Brassolinae.
Nevertheless, a beautiful picture!
Best wishes, Peter

Bonjour Ninfa

Hello Ninfa,
