The number of beetle and butterfly species here is nothing short of astounding, possibly the greatest diversity for any one ecosystem on the planet. Many, many of them have yet to be cataloged by science. Here are a few of the more colorful and interesting encounters this week. Beetles are of course a bit easier to photograph than are nervous butterflies 🙂
