Lucianus Metalmark

I photographed this tiny little fellow the day before yesterday, thinking it was probably another Satyr that I have a lot of in my yard now, this same size, but instead discovered another new butterfly for me, the Lucianus Metalmark, Calospila lucianus, formerly known in some places as a Carmine Grayler. (I’m fairly confident of this ID.) My photo will create another new species for the butterfly website I’m working for now. 🙂

Lucianus Metalmark, Atenas, Alajuela, Costa Rica.

Read on to see the original photo that I cropped in on for the above image.

He is among blades of grass to help you see how small he is. Its my landlord’s yard who doesn’t cut grass as often as me! 🙂

Albino Whale spotted in Costa Rica

Link to online Tico Times article in English with photos of the whale, an albino juvenile with a solid black mother discovered from a tourist plane. But I’m just as excited to discover a new butterfly! 🙂

¡Pura Vida!

And there’s my Costa Rica Butterflies Galleries!
