This was a tough spotting to get. I was surprised my guide even saw it. It was off the trail and on the under side of a leaf on a small shrub. I didn't want to disturb it and risk that it might fly away, so I lied down on the ground on my back and moved slowly until I was underneath it. As you can imagine, there wasn't much under light, so I had to use the flash for it to come out clearly. I only saw this once.
