Macro photos from Peru

Today I’ve taken the time to finally do some macro photography. I rarely feel like I have the energy to carry all the extra gear for macro photos, and while collecting data it is simply not appropriate to look at random bugs. But it gives us the possibility to look into an unknown world which I always appreciate. What is even more exciting in Peru, and especially in cloud forest areas, many of the insects are yet to be described here by science. Also, every now and then it is nice to get out and look at the small things in life and relax. So here are some pics (I wish I could load more but the internet is just tooooo slow):

Butterfly with transparent wings. Common but unfortunately no clue what it is. Perhaps someone knows?
