Butterflies of Costa Rica

Butterflies were everywhere in Costa Rica, constantly flying around throughout the forests and the resort, even out over the Gulf of Papagayo! They were very active and seldom landed except to nectar on the flowers. I don't have a field guide for any of the butterflies of Costa Rica, and am using Google as my primary ID source; if I have made any mistakes, feel free to correct me.
