Gonepteryx cleopatra (Linnaeus, 1767)
unfortunately, species of Gonepteryx have their wings closed when resting in most cases. The nice orange colour of the wing upperside can be slightly recognized on your picture. However, details of wing venation and colour pattern of the underside are clearly presented in good sharpness.
Semella que de cando en cando o macro si trabalha bem. Debes levar a tua camara a reparar, a o millor non e moi grave.
As volvoretas amarelas que atopo por aqui, son moi inquetas, moi dificiles de fotografiar. Ista beleza con nome egipcio merecia unha boa toma coma ista. Saudos amigo!
Wonderful close up.POV,details,sharpness,framing and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)
this one is excellent, so sharp and beautiful.
I love Brimstones so much, we also have them here in Germany. On a pink thistle they are wonderful. Also here with the dark BG, a good contrast. Thanks and bye

Texture, color and POV are the best to see clearly this elegant butterfly!

Very good POV, DOF, sharpness and colours, Paulo.
A very sharp capture of this lovely butterfly. IMHO you could have reduced the brightness a little bit and it would have brought out more colour and contrast in the insect.
I have been knocked down real bad by the flu bug and struggle to concentrate. So, please forgive me for not giving a complete critique, but I just wanted to deliver this well deserved smiley.
Good work and TFS.
PS. You can rest assure that next time I will present my usual brand of critique.
Hi Paulo,a lovely crisp sharp image.A pity it wasnt facing you, so that you could have caught it looking at you.

I really like this picture. What a beautiful creature. In the correct surroundings you will never see it. Good focus and DOF. Well done.
fantastic close up of this beautiful insect!

the background gives a perfect idea of the habitat of this species...a great nature photo indeed!
Belle présentation et belle prise en macro avec ce joli papillon ,les couleurs et la nettetée sont trčs bonnes, belle composition .
Au revoir et félicitation ....JP
Very good shot! The details on the wings are great and picture has good exposure too. As for my taste the BG is a bit too overhelming because of strong colour and structure of the green leaves. I think they take a bit too much attention from the butterfly.
Anyway, it's a good post.
Very interesting subject. The wings look like a leaf. I like your sharpness, detail, Composition, POV and DOF. TFS,
A beautiful composition, great background and contrasts. Superb sharp details. POV and colors are lovely.
Great picture of this butterfly.
Hi, Paulo. Great photo! The POV, detail, and composition are great. TFS!
Yes, on first sight it looks like Brimstone. Very good details, colours, good POV. Very shy butterfly, hard to capture. Good work!
Excellent details, well decided composition, and these different shades of green look very interesting and appealing!
Great! With thanks and best regards,
PS: Your camera seems to work very well again!
Thank you for uploaded pictures ;-)
This one is great - very good colours and composition.
