I spent a lot of time chasing butterflies when I was in Costa Rica…I often let them decide the direction I would hike. But many of them were challenging to photograph well. I found the Heliconius butterflies to be especially elusive (despite their abundance)! They flitted around the forest unpredictably, and rarely landed in one spot for long. I did capture a couple of photos of them…
A great diversity in this very successful genus!
I had a hard time getting a photo of this clearwing
I found this caligo sleeping upside down in the middle of the night
