Hello Mike,
you captured the colours and the details of this beauty very well. Exact focus and pretty good sharpness. Composition can be improved by slight tilting and cropping, in particular on the right side. I tried a workshop and hope that you like the result.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Mike,
This is a very clear and precise shot of a spectacular African Saturnid. They are sometimes called "snake's head" moths because of the line and patterns on the wing margins and the apical eye-spots. You have made a very good exposure with fine focus and very natural colours. Peter's crop is a little more dramatic, especially with the limited pixel size available in TN posting rules. Thanks.

Hello Mike,
Interesting and beautiful butterfly. Good wor. TFS.

Il est très étonnant ce papillon ! Je n'avais jamais rien vu de tel jusqu'alors. Merci du partage.

Ciao Mike,
grazie per questa magnifica specie di Saturniidae, che non conoscevo.
Foto molto nitida, perfettamente a fuoco e con colori molto naturali.
