Ciao Silvio,mi aspettavo una minestrina dato che difficilmente avresti trovato farfalle in laguna e cosi' e stato. Lo scatto comunque merita sicuramente il palcoscenico,avere dettagli ottimi come questi da un pov cosi' difficile e' opera ardua...complimenti e buona settimana,Luciano

Hi Silvio,

I don't think I have ever seen a photo of a butterfly in a position like this. The pose is marvelous showing off the face, legs and wings to full advantage. The lighting on the wings is wonderful. Excellent colors, clarity and composition.

Hi Silvio.
Very unusual and impressive POV. At this point butterfly is looked amazingly. DOF is great and I like level of butterfly image sharpness as well as details of the FG and blurriness of the BG. Upper and a bit back sunlight underlines the beauty of the insect perfectly. Well done and best wishes.
