Zeltus amasa amasa
A small butterfly. This one was often on the ground or perched on low-lying leaves or branches. It stayed in the same area for an hour or so, quite close to where I was standing to photograph butterflies on a bush. Didn't seem bothered by me and let me get close.
Tropical wet evergreen montane forest.
I love the black and white striped legs and matching antennae, and the way the stripes get closer together on the feet.
Lat: 10.14, Long: 76.70
