At the end of the trip, we returned to the Napo area and revisited some missed spots due to bad weather. With better weather, the mesmerizing butterflies did not let us down.
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.
