|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|It is one of the most common butterflies of the Argentine plains. It is commonly known as butterfly mirrors because the back of its wings has a number of silver spots that seem pieces of mirror. The specimen I photographed sunbathing on a wild plant; has wrinkled his hind wings; probably because you have just left their chrysalis...|

CIAO Hernan,i seen many times this specie in my trips (not in Italy obviusly..ehehehh).It's common but always beautiful,the wings design and the colors are magnificent,a very elegant butterfly that you caught in a perfect way,i like it! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano
After a long gap watching your post. Beautiful butterfly. Quite well captured in such harsh light. Useful NOTE to know why it's called "Mirrors".
Thanks for sharing,

I remember the first time I saw this species of butterfly in Nicaragua, I was amazed at it's beauty. I agree that it has recently emerged form it's chrysalis due to it's crinkled wings, but you have captured it very well all the same. Sharply focused while displaying good detail and rich vibrant colors. Nice job on exposure considering the harsh lighting you had to deal with.
