Hi Pedro,a bit oversaturated,but the details are wonderful! Great capture of this eurema,always difficult to identify because a very large family with small differences,useful post as usual! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hola Pedro,
I agree with Luciano about the oversaturation, however, I like the photo, because the composition's pleasant, combined with tack sharpness on the butterfly and unusually processed background blur, which even gains the feeling of an underwater scene (strange, but true - this was my 1st thought about it). Interesting shot!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Ciao Pedro, great macro of fantastic butterfly, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hola Pedro.
Gracias por compartir esta foto estupenda de una mariposa bien bonita y peculiar. La foto es excelente en todos sus aspectos, gran nitidez, detalles y texturas tanto en la mariposa coo en la hoja, bien compuesta y con una luz buenísima. El juego de tonos entre la hoja y la mariposa hablan de la facilidad que tiene para mimetizarse en su hábitat.
Enhorabuena por la foto.
Un cordial saludo.

Hi Pedro,
a perfectly well detailed, well aproached close-up demonstrating the Grass Yellow's perfect camouflage when resting on leaves. Thank you!
With best regards,
