2 New Daggerwing Butterflies Came Together

Walking back home from “Central” (what they call “downtown” here) along 8th Avenue in Barrio Boquerón, there were two bright orange butterflies that I thought were the same species, but later evaluating my cell phone photos of them on the computer, I realized the differences in the two species and my photo collection of 2 previous Daggerwings just doubled to 4! 🙂 Here’s one photo of each and you can go to my galleries to see the other shots, including one of the two together which is also the feature photo at top . . .

And oh yes, those other two Daggerwings I photographed away from home on two different rainforest trips (1 north & 1 south) . . .

No end to cool butterflies here! 🙂

¡Pura Vida!
