There are thousands of species of butterflies in Costa Rica. Apparently 90% of the butterflies of Central and South America can be found there! Photographed beautifully by many photographers. The number of blue morphos that accompanied us down and up every trail we took was astounding (in Peruvian Amazon, we saw maybe 3 in total, in Costa Rica we saw one every 5 min in some places, like Monteverde). What really amazed me were the caterpillars we saw, I have honestly not seen so many types, with so many spines ever before!
