Hello Jan,
beautiful shot of that species with excellent colours and details,
showing the soft hairy appearance of wings in a perfect way.
The butterfly seems to have enjoyed the warm rays of sun as much as you did in sunny Spain.
Thanks, and best regards,

Excellent capture. DOF and details are extraordinary. The brown barren BG suits the image.

Good macro, nice colors and interesting subject.

Hola Jan,
Bonita mariposa has atrapado. El color del fondo es idóneo y la sensación de precipicio es muy impresonante. Buenos detalles y composición.
