Hello Philippe, great job. It's a species that I am not familiar with. Very nice details and composition, well done.

Well captured Philippe, great detail, including the bg. Aren't the wings beautiful!

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Philippe, good perspective, detail and DoF, very nice.

Very nice macro Philippe.
Good composition and details. IMO it need little more contrast.
Very well done.

Very good cauture, good sharpness. But I think the dark part on the cactus is getting too much space.
Well done.
