great shot, Rich! What elevation was this at? You say cloud forest, was it pretty high? These are very uncommon in my experience, please send me this shot. I've only seen it once and it was very flighty. Are you using the stick to lift the wings? Nice to know that worked on this one.
thanks,
k

Hi Kim,

It was about 780 m, so no too high (appears to be the lowest point on the road to Apolo). The grass stem was just in the way, between me and the butterfly.
