Malachite Butterfly (Siproeta stelenes) - Costa Rica by 

A Malachite Butterfly (Siproeta stelenes) from Braulio Carrillo National Park, Costa Rica. September 2007.

These are one of the most common butterflies in the tropical Americas but still one of my favorites. They tend to be fairly “friendly” even in the wild. I have had several occasions where one has landed on me for quite a while.
