Don't worry, your, the biggest one, will wait for your shooting.

I checked it up in wikipedia and saw the photo with description...
Meh, I didn't catch it :)
Locals seeing me shooting call me up and show curious as they think butterflies/moths. But they don't notice small ones. And birds which know "insects hot spots" pick all them up in the morning...

Meh, South America. Meeeeeeeh.

This is #5027 underside. Size is about 20-22 cm. A guy who worked there and showed me this butterfly pushed it measuring with a string, it flew away and was hit at once by some bird.

Noctuidae.

That is the very underside (I was wrong), mishmash.

Why version? Underside is ok!

Looks like one of its versions. See the similar one: http://www.guianensis.fr/images/Noctuidae/Guy%2001181_modi1-s3.jpg.
