Hello Pedro,
Superb and colorful butterfly....I'm sure the designers are jealous of the drawing on the wings of these butterflies...
Outstanding clarity and details.

Hola Pedro.
Una mariposa muy bonita y con un dibujo en sus alas diferente. Su dibujo y tonos son idóneos para camuflarse en el tronco de ese árbol.
Muy buena foto.
Enhorabuena y un cordial saludo.
