A beautiful Lasaia agesilas (Riodinidae) photographed in Caçapava, SP, Brazil. This species is found exclusively in the neotropics (from Mexico to Paraguay). They are small butterflies, averaging about 30mm in wingspan. Males have extremely reflective wing scales, shimmering in metallic turquoise, blue or steely grey according to species. Females are rarely seen. They are generally a dull earthy brown color. Both sexes have a similar pattern of black spots.
The butterflies are strongly attracted to human sweat. So when you come across them, get ready because they will not stop harassing you.

oh yeah so evolution has also given secretary birds extraordinarily long eyelashes as well, so you get to be jealous of that too.
