Calycopis cf. isobeon
A small Lycaenidae butterfly. Very hard to see the colours when it was flying around. It appeared to be mostly brown. Was pleasantly surprised when I saw it on the computer. I found it quite early in the morning and was having trouble with the lens fogging up in the extremely high humidity. Just managed these 2 shots before I couldn't use it at all, as it completely fogged over. 2nd photo is already foggy.

I think this must be a Groundstreak, Calycopis sp. http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/galle...
