Very good Heinz!
Two at the same time!
Beautiful photo!
Very good POV and BG!

Good shot Heinz. 2 in the one shot. Bonus! Well done. TFS.

Hi Heinz! Wonderful frame, colors and composition. Perfect details, DOF and light. Well done and TFS ;-)

Interesting shot of the two juxtaposed this way Heinz. Good colors and detail. Well done.
Thank you!

Two is better than one!
Great shot. The top one looking like having three wings is just fabulous.

Hallo Heins,
das ist wieder eine ganz tolle Bildgestaltung, die zwei falter sind wunderbar platziert. Schoene Farben und klasse Rahmen. Nicht ganz so scharf wie deine anderen Fotos, aber trotzdem von sehr guter Qualitaet.

Hallo Heinz,
noch so ein wundervoller ...., keine Ahnung wie er auf Deutsch heißt.
Der hintere hatte schon mal Pech, da fehlt was an den Flügeln, ob er so wohl noch fliegen konnte? Vielen Dank und viele Grüße

Heinz, to me, Howard's workshop improved the image.

Apart from that, great pov, great moment.

I like colors and composition too.

Hi Heinz,
you captured two beauties at the same time.
Pity that is a bit soft. WEll composed, good POV and nice colours.
WEll done.

Excellent capture.
It is a very beautiful shot indeed, congratulations for this composition. I like very much Howards workshop.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Heinz:

Nice photo!!!
and a cordial taxonomical correction.
Actually, you have two different species in there, and no one is H. hecale. In fact the biggest butterfly in your photo is Tithorea tarricina a beautiful and unusual Ithomiinae (clear wing)wich is mimetic with Heliconius hecale. I dont know the name of the smaller species but most probably is another Ithomiinae, not an Heliconius.

Bes Wishes Carlos.
