I just noticed that there were different pictures first. I think this one might nevertheless be an Oleria sp.

@Juan: Unfortunately the link has a wrong ID. It is Greta organe oto, not Oleria rubescens.

Juan, neither one of our suggestions has a range to Colombia. However, if you check out the top of the wings I think you will see that the Vicina is more similar.

For the first picture perhaps the ID is the same as for this other spotting:

Pretty pictures, Nicolas! can you place each animal picture on a separate spotting to facilitate people to suggest you IDs for your spottings?
Also try to add information about where you have seen the animal, describing the circumstances for the spotting.
