Today was great! I had a blast looking for different photos of insects and learning more about them. I also found this photo of Marpesia iole a type of Dagger wing. As far as I know it does have a common name, but isn't it pretty? I think it's one of the most beautiful butterflies I've come across online! I got the photo from www.neotropicalbutterflies.com If you look under "Daggerwings" you should see Marpesia iole along with a bunch of other Marpesia species. The Ruddy Daggerwing ( Marpesia petreus ) is among them too. I had a great day today!
