Hola Josep Ignasi, mi amigo.
Tu espléndida mariposa se asemeja mucho a ' Hesperia comma' (la coma, en francés)
Su dibujo sobre el revés de las alas se pone muy bien en valor.
Bravo Amistades

Hola Josep,
interesting and difficult point of view. But, due to the great depth of field, you
achieved an optimal result. I think this is one of your best macros - very impressive.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Josep,

Very good portret of the butterfly. Very nice and sharp image focused on the head of the insect. Good use of the light rendering nice and mild brown color tones.

Thank you fro sharing,

Hello Josep Ignasi. This is stunningly closed in tight frame. The antennas and the compound eye attracted my attention. Such detail in excellent perch. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Hi Josep.
I am amazed with POV and composition. They are so impressive as well as brilliant exposure and reproduction of the light colour tones and nice details of the skipper. Huge DOF, great sharpness of the image, wonderful well blurred brownish BG as a canvas for the subject. My compliments and TFS.
