We was visiting a park in CostaRica and I had to go to the bathroom. On the floor this beautiful  butterfly stayed. Looking at the image I see it has patches similar to "mother-of -pearl" Catching the light in an iridescent way.

This is a butterfly I captured during my stay in Copal, Costa Rica in jan-feb 2011. Of course I don´t know what species it is. But I thought we all need something beautiful to look at.
