Helioconia butterfly

I was surprised how close I was able to get to this helioconia butterfly. They normally stay one step ahead of me as I try to get pictures. The water was still drying off the leaves of this Triplaris tree, so it could be that the wings of the butterfly were a bit humid. Regardless, it´s the best shot I´ve ever been able to get of this little beauty.
