Discovering Costa Rica :
This picture is dedicated to Luciano (lousat), who is presenting tirelessly interesting butterfly species on TN.
We deal with, if I am not mistaken, with Marpesia berania fruhstorferi (Hewitson, 1852), the Orange Daggerwing (Nymphalidae), "a common sight on beaches near forests from Honduras to Peru". Thanks, Luciano for help with the ID.
The shot was taken at the beach of the Parque nacional de Corcovado near the research station of Sirena.

Hi Dietrich,thanks a lot for the dedication first! And what a wonderful gift to me from your trip in Costarica,this butterfly is amazing and i never seen live in my life. The ID is correct but i think that this is the subspecies Marpesia berania fruhstorferi (Seitz, 1914). A great quality of the sharpness too despite the difficult wings position. Thanks a lot and have a nice weekend,Luciano

What a beautiful species, Dietrich!
Very sharp, crisp and colourful image from Costa Rica.
Thanks!

Hallo Dieter,
Schön wieder Bilder von dir zu sehn..du warst also in Costa Rica..
Ein wunderschöner Schmetterling, nicht ganz einfach ihn zu fotografieren so am Boden. Man kann aber beide Flügelseiten sehen, was zur ID beitragen kann.
Herzlich grüsst
anne

Hi Dietrich,
Wonderful species and photo, plus nice dedication to Luciano. You captured the bright orange tone perfectly, and the focus was on the closer wing, a little under the top, so we get perfect sharpness on almost the whole outer side of the left wing. Nice shot, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
