What a beautiful capture for this butterfly!
I like so much the light reflections on their wings, that produce a such vivid's colors.
Great POV and DOF used to put away the background.
It's very good the color's contrast of the background, the dried leaf and the insect.
I like so much the composition made, with the leaf hanging from the upper right corner, and the simple frame used.
Congratulations, thanks for share and best regards,

I must congratulate you both on an excellent butterfly shot and spot-on ID. It is the Idas Blue male. You portray it sharply and with good POV set in a fine comp.
Keep digging for a few more like this, if not I look forward to your shots from SA.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Jejeje... excelente punto de vista para captar tan bella imagen Paul, donde la mariposa parece estar espiando la situación.
Me encanta la agudeza captada con gran luminosidad que brinda hermosos colores realzados por el perfecto contraste sobre el fondo verde.

j'etais passé a coté de ce superbe cliché de papillon,j'adore la couleur et aussi la texture de ses ailes.
le flash a donné suffisament de lumiere sans pour autant etre visible.
