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.

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

Why version? Underside is ok!
