Caligo atreus dionysos
It was so large I thought it was a bird!! This is the most beautiful butterfly I have ever seen!! the snake on the wind was so real it was scary!! the marks on the body and wings remind me of tigers and zebras... when the wings open the most incredible purple/blue and bright yellow spots left me speechless.
I am almost sure it is a Owl Butterfly, the only problem I encounter is that I could not find any pictures or comments about the colors/design of the top wings?!
