Yes Rieko it is a hopper. Seems like I forgot to add it to the hopper mission. Added it!

Found one on La Selva too... Love this things, they're amazing!!! Great shots, it looks pretty big, i think its a female (females are bigger than males).

Thanks Cindy. I can't take the credit at all. It was the guide at La Selva who spotted it! But I feel lucky to have seen it. It was such a strange looking creature, and so colourful with it's wings open...
