Luna Phantom-Satyr

Pierella luna luna

Description:

I never get this kind,,,I am sure it has to do with the high winds...I see them in the bottom of the Garden in the far side could never get a good picture...this time she was ..inside...My house

Habitat:

Gallery Forest. 900 Meters-3000 feet above sea level, next to Tanaca National Park, a Pasture , and in a Garden with Endemic trees, plants and flowers of Costa Rica.

Notes:

Funny the name is Phantom...Every time I saw her in my Garden she was always close to the ground and then she would be gone...Like a Phantom...
