An exquisite collection

At the same booth with the snout beetles, there was this unbelievable collection of small multicolored butterflies. The guy in the booth said that these species don't sell as well as the bigger exotics, mostly because they are so small, but he and some of his friends collect and trade them amongst themselves. This tray was for display only, not for sale. He was nice enough to open the glass top on the tray so I could take a picture without the glare.



Can you imagine....






This is a tropical hairstreak species.
