Hello Luciano,
Perfect sharp detailed photo of this butterfly. Beautiful natural colors. Taken from a very good POV. Great!

Hello Luciano,
Get down more Luciano and try to take it from ground POV. It will look better than this. Again details look good as well as colors.
POV could have been better, in my personal test, because I want to see improvement in the photograph.
Thanks and regards to

Bonjour Luciano,

L'insecte est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Astérope. La lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
