Hello Sergio,
indeed a very beautiful capture from the top.
Excellent sharpness and total image of a butterfly in full spread wings.
It simply floats, as you have composed the background so neat and so smooth.
Well done.

Ciao Sergio,
This image has all the ingredients to make it a fine butterfly portrait: a fresh specimen of M. phoebe, excellent open wing pose against a neutral natural clean BG, best dorsal POV, fine sharpness and natural colours set in a perfect composition.
But you know all that already! :)
Thanks and have a good week,
