The truth is that I saw many of these butterflies in Costa Rica, across time. One morning though, during a very quiet time living near Puerto Viejo during covid-19, I was walking the hostel dogs and noticed a large one sitting on a fallen tree at the end of the beach.

All prints are produced from high quality scans that use embedded colour profiles to ensure that the print colours are as true as possible to the original artwork. The prints are archival quality, using the giclee printing process on 310gsm cotton rag paper that is acid-free and lignin-free.
Please note that colours may vary from what you see on your screen or computer monitor. This is due to the fact that every screen or monitor has a different capability to display colours and that we all see these colours differently.
