Hello Mike,

What a wonderful butterfly! Very nice POV and DOF. Great sharpness and splendid patterns and colours on the wings. We can even seen two flies behind the butterfly.
Well done,

Hallo Mike,
thank you for a further nice contribution concerning African butterflies which are largely under-represented at TN.
Excellent focus and sharpness allow to see the beautiful colour pattern of this Charaxes.
The background is a bit noisy. Its distraction can be minimized by cropping above the butterfly.
I tried a workshop and hope that you will like the result.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Mike,
Looking nice, even in similar background, you have managed to differentiate it properly. Its pattern at top edges consisting of various arcs is looking great.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Mike

Great to see another butterfly from Ghana. I've seen butterflies doing this behaviour in Asia but not yet come across it in Australia.
Great looking species.

Hello Mike
