Hello Luciano,
Wonderful photo of this butterfly in fantastic sharpness and details. Never seen before. Good DOF and natural colors.

Ciao Luciano,
nice picture with many details.
Kind regards,

You have created 3 dimensional effect here, Luciano.
Apparently, your trip to Oman has been a grand success; you have showcased this exotic butterfly for the first time on TN.
Well done!

The visible crisp sharp and the eye contact, the trunk is inside and this is the perfect time to get it silently.
TFS well frozen shot.

Hi Luciano
Interesting eye-like spot on the wing of this skipper.


Bonsoir Luciano,

L'insecte est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Coeliades anchises jucunda. La lumière rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.


Hello Luciano,
Again, Congratulation 🎊 🎊 🎊 🎊 🎊 for finding such new species.
Nothing to say about details and colors or sharpness.... Perfect. I like it.
I don't like background. Distracting viewers... although butterfly is well captured. Background does play a great role in Photograph. Good documentation of this species, but different but not a good Photograph, definitely personal opinion.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
