I took several photos of this species at this location but wasn't happy with any of them. It is fairly large for a metalmark. The various ancyluris species seem to give my camera a problem with the red colour.
Sunburst Glory (Myscelus phoronis) This stunning butterfly is usually encountered when solitary males are seen basking on low foliage, nectaring at Eupatorium, or imbibing moisture at roadsides or along rocky riverbanks. When basking and feeding the wings are normally held outspread, but in hot sunny conditions males sometimes walk about slowly on the ground with the wings erect over the back.
