I spotted this on the way to Hornoyaco Falls. I was waiting on a caterpillar to start feeding again and in the meantime spotted this and a lot of other stuff. I didn't expect to see that much but I ended up spending more than an hour in the same spot on the trail. I had my backpack off because I knew I was going to be a while and this came out of nowhere and landed on it. Flying insects love my sweaty backpack and if I know I'm going to be somewhere for a while, I will set it up a bit out of the way and then come back to see what's landed on it. Got a lot of great spottings this way!
