It is dificult to take the photo of these beauty. He is big and fast. Very good job. Nice saturated colours, good OOF background and pretty good sharpness
I like it very much

Wow, what luck to see this fabulous butterfly. It looks as if it belonged in the rainforest. I'd love to see it! Excellent sharpness and beautiful colours. I love its pose on the bending grass. A lovely composition!

Excellent the way the insect stands out from the background. Very interesting subject and a fine composition with excellent detail. Well done.
great and beautiful - a jasius from this point of view. What did you that the butterfly did not take off upon your approach?
Colours and light are superb.
This is also for depth of field and sharpness.
Best wishes, Peter

No había visto nunca esta Mariposa Marcello y lo cierto es que es espectacular. La enfocaste de maravilla y aprovechaste perfectamente la iluminación natural. Te quedó expléndida.
En cuanto a mi foto, está captada con la Canon G3, con la que curiosamente conseguia (creo) unas fotografías que en la mayor parte de las ocasiones no igualo con la Canon 400D.

Superb capture of a fresh specimen of C. jasius with fine sharpness and POV in a great composition. IT almost looks like an in-flight capture!
This is a species that I dream to see and photograph though years ago when I was young I have seen several Charaxes species in Africa.

I like wonderful subject: impressive ear and amazing butterfly on it. Both are reproduced greatly. Superb colours, sharpness and details. I like excellent DOF and nice blurred BG. Well done and TFS.

what a spectacular, mighty, unusual, exotic looking butterfly capture. A most lively, well detailed and powerfully colourful picture report, certainly a rare chance you have taken to picture this rapid flyer at short rest with its wings spread. This document really looks unusual. Most pictures that I know of this species are showing it with wings closed. Thank you!
With best regards,
