Now you have your open wing shot I ordered! Do you think this might be the same one looking at the blue part on the hindwing (you told me on the forewing)?? If there are so many around try to get a closer look. BTW: It should be Epiphile sp. (misspelling).
Yes! I will dream of Brazilian butterflies, big ones, white and blue ones and they are just posing for me and only me. Sitting on wonderful flowers. I have absolutely no hurry to install my gear, have a beer, they are still sitting on the same flower and I make some wonderful shots of them. Open wing, closed wings, again an open wing shot, just for me... Puff: 05.30 am and I am looking to your wonderful shots...
Hi, hi... I never told you that Natural History is an easy job... White Morpho? I think you had one shot of it from the side. Hmm, lot of blue? Depending on the angulation and perspective you have a black butterfly and a second later one with wonderful blue glimpse. You you better go now for looking for a open wing shot and I go to bed... Cheers!
I don't know!!! They are allways flying, never stop, and I am getting mad trying to photograph them!!! All I can see are glimpses of colour. You would be crazy with the butterflies here. There is a gigantic white one that never, never, NEVER stops!!!
Hindwing or forewing?
Ok, I will. What I can tell you is that it had a lot of blue in its upperwings...
Are you still there??
Tricky one due to no access to the open forewings. There are 2 species in your area: Epiphile orea (orea) and Epiphile hubneri. No it's your job! Go out and find me one with open wings, then I tell you which one it is!
