[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I photographed this American Snout butterfly while on my trip to Nicaragua last summer. I had hoped to capture it in an open winged pose, but had no luck at all.

I took this shot in my daughters back yard as the butterfly was perched on her lemon tree. It was very sunny as you can tell and the snout seemed to like soaking up the warm sun rays.

Hola Ron, que linda esta exótica mariposa, nunca vi algo así; hermosa composición,color y entorno...saludos.

Hi Ron,

The leaves are framing well the insect. The point of view is showing the details of the American Snout Butterfly. There is a good contrast between the colours of the picture. Have a nice day.
