Turquoise-spotted Navy Eighty-eight butterfly (Diaethria astala astala)
A treat for me while climbing to the top of the 140' Caana pyramid was spotting a new (for me) species of "88" butterfly, the Turquoise-spotted Navy Eighty-eight, with the faint number-like markings on the outer wings and that thin red rim.
It would occasionally spread those wings to show that turquoise coloring on the upper wing.
