Hello Christodoulos,
Superb sharp detailed photo of this butterfly in gorgeous contrasting colours. Excellent composition.

True to its name, this butterfly from the Blues family really looks silver-studded, Chris. Your picture brings forth this fact with powerful clarity and with most amazing colours.
The large macro is flawless. The butterfly stands out like a jewel against the plain dark BG.
Pleasure to be by your side of the gallery today!
