Beautiful butterfly, Ricardo. I really like the composition with the horizontal yellow line on the butterfly's wings, and the diagonal lines from the banana leaf. Color contrast is excellent as well. Well done and TFS. : )

...La hoja de plátano, que excelente fondo para los colores de esta hermosa mariposa, me gusta la belleza extendida que has captado, generalmente he visto a esta mariposa aletear demasiado, que bellos detalles captados, interesante composición, con brochazos azules que parecen pintar los ojitos y las patas. Saludos Cordiales.*Ninfa Urania*

Esto es un retrato agradable, Ricardo. Es claro y agudo, y pero si está en el centro, la diagonal de la hoja da un buen dinámico a la fotografía.

Another excelent photo Ricardo!
Wonderful colors it has!
Very good details too!

Exposed well with great color, detail and sharpness Ricardo. Perhaps a less centered composition IMO. Excellent note & Well Done!
Merry Christmas!!

Great achievement of having the butterfly in this position. somehow the DOF can be improved.

Bonita foto de esta mariposa, me hace acordar a una que hay por aquí, que vulgarmente la llamamos mariposón limonero, por su tamaño y visitas a esta planta. Creo que tambien es de la familia Papilionidae y de mayor tamaño que la que nos muestras.

leaf in diagonal position is very good BG for this beautiful butterfly..
neat and simple compo
