[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...

Hello Hernan,
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,

Hello Hernan,
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.
