Bela borboleta.
dismorphia amphiona
Lepidoptera é uma ordem de insectos (lepidópteros) muito diversificada que inclui as borboletas e um grupo chamado de traças em Portugal e mariposas no Brasil. O grupo inclui insectos com dois pares de asas membranosas cobertas de escamas e peças bucais adaptadas a sucção. O ciclo de vida dos lepidópteros engloba as seguintes etapas: ovo, larva, chamada também de lagarta, pupa e imago, a fase adulta.
A nota é igual a da anterior porem a posição diferente.

Hello Nilson,
This is a fine capture that deserves more credit. The sharpness, colours and composition on the lantana flowers are great!
But this is not a Pierid butterfly as they stand on six legs. This one stands on four legs and is probably a species belonging to the Ithomidae, probably a species of Oleria
Thanks and have a good weekend,

what a beautiful butterfly

Hello Nilson
What a beautiful butterfly ! i love his colors very much
great luminosity, superb environment and fine details

That sounds like an Indian name for this butterfly, Nilson.
Very exotic butterfly with bold colours and patterns on the wings. I wonder how the top view of them would look like.
A pretty good shot.

Hello Nilson,
A beautiful butterfly which reminds me a lot of one I photograped while in Brazil a few years ago. Perfectly composed with beautiful colors and exceptional detail. Well done!!!

Hi Nilson.
What a wonderful species. I am amazed. DOF is great. Both butterfly and plant are reflected with all their fine details and features. Bravo.
