Creamy Crescent

The butterfly people on our dragonfly tour enjoyed an incredible diversity of butterflies along the road leading from the Arenal Observatory Lodge on 10 July 2017. I am now disappointed that I did not pay more attention to our butterfly experts during the tour—there was a lot to be learned. At the time, however, I had my hands full with the diversity of dragonflies and birds.  I may have mentioned earlier that this year seemed to support a surprising number of butterflies in Costa Rica. This Creamy Crescent (Eresia clio) is found from southern Mexico to Brazil and Bolivia. This butterfly feeds on nectar and also comes down to feed on minerals on river sandbanks.
