Costa Rican butterfly with pearly lustre

NF Photo 110130, in Costa Rica

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.

Alla sådana bilder som minner om sommaren behövs nu när snön kommer och idag blåser det en hel del.
Ha en fin dag
