What can I say. It is perfect. Great sharpness, perfect, perfect, perfect background. Beautiful colors Nothing to critique Photo of the day
Wow ... this is spectacular Joe!
What an amazing species ... and you've captured it perfectly. A great POV and wonderful colour and detail.
The weather is clearing a little here and its getting warmer at last. I'm feeling a lot better today.
I'll try and get out with the Raynox tomorrow.

This is an excelent portret of the butterfly. Sharpness of the image is very good showing great details of wings texture and pattern. Blurry background enhaces viewers feeling of main subject's sharpnes.
Thank you for sharing,

Yes, such things happen in photography. It is a matter of light, optimism of the photographer, chance and something magic maybe. This is a very beautiful species with amazing colours. Very nice background too. Congratulations,

Excellent shot, beautifully composed. However, if you want to see even more in a day, go to Tambopata Reserve in Amazonian Peru. You would want to stay there forever!! Thanks.

Excellent POV and sharpness.
Impressive the wealth of details.

Thanks for sharing this preciousness!
What a stunning image, perfect in every way. A great subject that stands out well from the background.
I recently purchased a Canon 180mm macro, and I see you took this on a 180mm macro, so now I can't wait for Spring and Summer to try out my new lens! Your wonderful images are a great source of inspiration and motivation for me. Thanks for sharing!

Hello Joe. Majestic image in tight crop. I like the colorful detail in pin sharp focus. The closed wings are very well framed and the background is very well silenced. The image stands out really well even in the thumbnail. Well done and best regards. Jusni
