Hi Roberto,
A special image to celebrate this milestone. Brilliant sharpness, details and splendid colours in this macro. The DOF is excellent and so is the composition.
Regards,
Peter

Hi Roberto
very pretty and lovely butterfly in excellent details. The markings are pretty and the blurry background makes the composition effective and give an impact.
Well presented shot.
