A beautiful specimen, perfect exposure and sharpness, nice, homogenously blurred dark BG, altogether an excellent composition. TFS.

Nice pov and beautidul species!

Preciosa toma Mike, con buena profundidad y unos colores muy logrados. Excelente encuadre y bueno el detalle de verse la parte superior e inferior de las alas. Gracias por tu intento

Hi Mike,
Good macro with a nice BG!
Nice colors!

Amazing photograph! I tend to look at photos on TL more for their quality as a piece of visual art and less for what they show in nature. This photograph is beautiful. I love the deep, dark background and the contrasting wings. The detail is so crisp and sharp. Very, very beautiful photo!

Hello Mike.

Excellent macro, very good details and colors.

Hi, nice shot of a very beautiful butterfly. I like the composition with the motif, the green plant it´s sitting on and the almost black background.
