Lovely photo... very nice.
Wow, what a beauty!
That's good. Yes, I still have that spot, will post this weekend for sure.
No worries! I think the Charis looks not bad, the Detritivora I need some more time for checking. You still owe me the butterfly #1 from your Anthanassa set...
Shame on me! I may be wrong about the species, maybe I should have just left them at the genus level.
Hmm...about your butterflies... I took a quick glance at them and noticed my favorite metalmarks-I-usually-would-not-dare-to-get-down-to-species-level...
Thanks for the ID bayucca. I got the email saying I had a species suggestion. I was hoping it wasn't a correction on my recent butterflies and it wasn't! Thanks for this ID. You have a great knack for finding links from the exact place where I spotted my organisms. @alice, thanks, no, I didn't see him rubbing on anything, just hanging out on top of a small bush.
Note the location in the link...
Third picture is really cool of him shedding, did you see what he rubbed against to get rid of his old coat?
