Beautiful and incredible coloring!
Thank you Maria and James!
I agree with James; interesting to see a buckeye with red and blue colors rather than brown and yellow
Gorgeous shots...superb. I love the blue, the Common Buckeye in Florida does not have that coloring...thanks for sharing
And thx for the correction Bayucca! ;)
Thank you Joshua, Marta, Rob and Adarsha for the lovely comments!@Marta: Yes you should definitely go there! It's a beautiful country with a lot of different ecosystems and still a lot of hidden treasures! :)
Nymphalidae, Nymphalinae, Junonini, Junonia sp. and either Junonia genoveva or Junonia evarete. Not distinguishable from this picture, you would need to see the underside of the antennae.Junonia coenia is a species of US and the Caribbean and not found in Bolivia although there is mentioned in Wiki in Colombia. I am very sceptic about this info. Unfortunately you cannot trust most of the IDs you will find about these 2 species...https://www.flickr.com/photos/kkertell/1...http://www.ross.no/communicate/2012/11/2...http://tolweb.org/onlinecontributors/app...https://www.flickr.com/photos/21182099@N...https://www.flickr.com/photos/trekman/86...https://www.flickr.com/photos/21182099@N...http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2909/14492...From Bolivia: http://www.danske-natur.dk/images68/ble1...
Excellent - beautiful :)
Beautuful butterfly, nice spotting Pieter.
Wow! another beautiful finding! You convinced me: I will put Bolivia on my list :-)
You literally cannot get a picture of this butterfly in better light!
Hey Gilma! Thank you for the ID and the interesting information about it. Really cool!
The Common Buckeye or simply Buckeye, Junonia coenia.http://news365.co/10-most-amazing-butter...
I saw this interesting fact to explain the color on your Buckeye: Common buckeyes exhibit seasonal polyphenism, the summer version of the butterfly has light yellowish ventral wings and is called "linea". The fall morph has pink ventral wings, and is called the "rosa" morph.
Beautiful!! PieterColpaert. Is it some type of Buckeye Butterfly, Junonia?
