This is the 88 butterfly. I've never seen one like that since the date I took the picture. And there were so many, landing on my body, my food, my camera, I didn't get upset with them just because is impossible to do it in a place like the National Park of Foz do Iguaçu. When you come to Brazil forget about Rio de Janeiro, go to Foz, is much better. Nature, the falls, peace, silence and a good restaurant at the very top of the falls.

The butterfly colors pops from the background. This one has no PP work or crops, is posted how it was clicked. I composed the pic placing the 88 at the center, taking advantage of it's position on the railing.

have a nice day!
