Tentyris Forester

Bebearia tentyris

Description:

"There are about 95 Bebearia species, all of which are found in the forests of the Afrotropics. The males of several Bebearia species have a fritillary-like pattern of dark spots on a brownish or orange ground colour. Several species have an overall metallic blue sheen. In tentyris there is a blue iridescence over the discal cell and costal areas of the forewings, but the remaining areas of the wings reflect a dull copper or reddish hue. The iridescence is only apparent when the insect is basking in direct sunlight." A. Hoskins

Habitat:

Kwabina-san Forest, a tropical rainforest in Ghana

Amazing colour effect. I suppose the flash is working like sunlight here.
