My second butterfly post from yesterdays visit to Earnley gardens. This was a large kingfisher blue coloured butterfly and try as I may I couldnt get a shot of it in flight.
Again, I rely on someone to tell me the species, as I know nothing about them.

Another lovely capture of a butterfly Michael,
This one is an Owl Butterfly (caligo eurilochus)
Good detail, colours and sharpness. Composition and lighting are good. Good POV and framing.

Thanks for posting, Enjoy the rest of the weekend..

Hello Michael,

Hi Michael,
POV, sharpness and colors are outstanding. The Portrait format is very well chosen as it adds visiual lenght to the wings. a lovely composition.

Michael, a beauty.

Great sharpness upon the butterfly. Besides, I like contrast and the slightly bg too.

Lovley critter and well composed. It could do with a littl emore DOF but given the available light I am not sure if you could get it. Well done.
