I apologize, Mauricio, but the last one is definitely a Caligo sp.!

mmm, the bright blue butterfly is a Blue Morpho (Morpho peleides), but the butterfly with the big "eye" on the wing is a different specie, Caligo memnon

The eye spots on the butterfly on the last shot are very much like those of the Owl butterfly, Caligo memnon
