Hello Seyfi,
this is a stunning butterfly. Great close-up and wonderful colors.
Thnak you for sharing this beauty.
Best regards Siggi

A beautifully executed and sharply depicted macro study Seyfi, the partial side-lighting demonstrates the fine sculpturings of the underwings while reproducing the colour scheme of the b.fly perfectly. The OOF but chromatic BG completes this fine composition. Thanks for sharing this spectacular image with us my friend.

Hallo Seyfi
Looking at the thumbnail of your image I thought I saw a hot air balloon. No all jokes aside. This butterflies wings are really enormous, the way I see them on my computer screen. The colours and patterns captured is a lovely sight. The huge eye displays wel, and I like the way one can see how the butterfly is clutching onto the leaves. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.
