Thank you José! It is indeed similar, I´m glad in the end you could find an ID via this way :)Thank you SarotaBoy for the ID
Your butterfly is Astraptes alardus, Diaz.
Love the second shot! It's similar to this one: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/994...I often see them and wonder if they somehow mimic a small humming bird when they fly.
