After Napo, we went deeper into the Amazonia. The weather was overall good, with occasional heavy shower. We found Helicopis cupido and met the lovely Anteros renaldus.
Recorded in Mantadia National Park, Madagascar. It’s not endemic to Madagascar, but it’s not far from endemic. Other than Madagascar, it’s only found in Comoro Islands nearby.
Recorded in Amazonia within Ecuador. Comparing to other Eco zones, there are more Riodinidae species. However, many of them behaves like Celaenorrhinus sp. in Asia. During the day, they like to stay under the leaves. Shooting them with traditional DSLR is not very suitable. To avoid missing huge amount of Riodinidae species, we need to pick some equipment specifically. During the trip, I used Canon G11 with the articulating screen.
攝於厄瓜多爾的亞馬遜林區. 相比其他地區, 亞馬遜林區有相當多的蜆蝶科蝴蝶. 不過習性上, 很像亞洲這邊的星弄蝶, 日間愛停在葉片下. 拍攝這些蝴蝶時, 使用傳統單反機反而很無力. 為了不錯失大量蜆蝶科蝴蝶, 在選用器材上確實需要採取針對性的. 這次採用的相機, 是可以掀出螢幕的Canon G11.
