At the Campanario Biological Reserve, I learned that the word mariposa in Spanish describes both butterflies and moths. This is interesting given that; 1) these organisms are active at different times of a day; one is diurnal and the other is nocturnal, and 2) there are thousands of different species of each. Of all the mariposa I saw inhabiting los banos of the biological reserves and flying over river banks, I was most enraptured by the infamous Blue Morpho of Costa Rica during the circadian subjective day and the minuscule Green Moth during the circadian subjective night.
Until montegraphia.com sends me pictures of each (ahem!) I provide images courtesy of Google.
