Very beautiful :)
Wow felicidades que bella
Anaea is the older name.
Look at the ventral shot! Perfect camouflage if it is "sitting" on the ground taking feeding minerals etc. Must be a big surprise for any bird if it opens the wings!
I agree with Viv- who would think of these combinations and yet, it's suberb. just a few touches of pink and blue...wonderful spotting!. Thanks for sharing this Ivan.
Superb indeed! Most unusual colours
Nymphalidae, Charaxinae (Leafwings), Fountainea nessus. Very nice one!http://tolweb.org/Fountainea_nessus
