Mariposas of Mindo

Our first stop in the Mindo area was at a mariposeria (butterfly farm).  
Mr. Hunter put on a little banana "cologne" to see if that might entice a butterfly to say hello.

Hello, King Swallowtail!

Me, Mr. Hunter, and a Caligo Eurilochus

Caligo Euirlochus is also called a Blue Morpho.
Here's what one looks like when its wings are open.
