Watch more with these video collections:

The Blue Longwing Butterfly (Heliconius eleuchia), the Bellona Metalmark (Necyria bellona), the Atreus Owl Butterfly (Caligo atreus), all spending some quiet time on leaves in Columbia’s TatamΓ‘ National Park (Parque Nacional Natural TatamΓ‘). This meditative footage was captured by nature photographer David Weiller. Turn up the volume to hear the calming forest sounds.

Other observed species include a Black Falcon Butterfly (Corades panonia ploas), a Phidias Firetip butterfly (Pyrrhopyge phidias), a Drymoea hesperoides, and more. Weiller includes a list in order of appearance.
