Butterfly Photo  (Foto de Mariposa), Reserva Las Gralarias, Ecuador  © 2002 Peter W. Wendelken

This butterfly was photographed in 2002 when my wife and I visited the  Reserva Las Gralarias in the company of the owner, Jane Lyons, Ph.D., in search of the Giant Antpitta, Velvet-purple Coronet, Scaled Fruiteater and others. This beautiful reserve harbors many rare species and has since been expanded, has a birding lodge, Las Gralarias Guest House, and hosts research projects. Jane Lyons has also operated Mindo Bird Tours for over 10 years and has vast experience in organizing custom birding trips within Ecuador and in other South American countries.
