Amazon Beauty (Baeotus aeilus)

This particular location is the “shipyard” of Cristalino Jungle Lodge (where the boats are taken on land), which was crowded with many different species. Luckily there were very few guest at the time I was at this hotspot, so the butterflies were more or less only disturbed by my slow movements.

Many butterfly species, including this one, do not show the dorsal colors except in flight but this one was generous – at lest to a certain point, as it was only briefly flapping wings – like a tease! Open, closed, open, closed……
