Hello Roberto,
Splendid photo in superb sharpness, details and very beautiful clear colours. For me the frame is a bit heavy. Good DOF and centred composition.
Regards,
Peter

Hello Roberto,
I always look forward to seeing these beautiful little bronze and orange colored butterflies each year, but as of yet it's been too cold. You captured this particular one in fine detail and gorgeous coloration. Exposure is right on the money and the full opened winged pose is very attractive. Great work!!
Ron
