Anna's Eighty-eight

Sunday, December 31, 2006 | 1 comment

When Esme and I were walking on the slope of a canyon near the town of Teocelo, Veracruz, we found many butterflies resting on a rock wall, part of the canyon. I named it the "butterfly rock", and took many pictures. The photo below is one of the best out of the series, a photo of Anna's Eighty-eight (Diaethria anna).

When seen from above, the butterfly is dark brown with 2 metallic green or blue bands. We see this species a lot in the Teocelo-Xico area and around Xalapa.
