I can decipher subtle shades of color on its partially visible other wing, even though the predominant pale yellow itself is equally fascinating.
It is a pleasure to see the red and the yellow of nature in such beautiful harmony.

Hola Ricardo, creo que en esta ocasión la mariposa le da oportunidad de lucir a la flor, los tonos rojos son muy bellos, esas antenitas van directo a lo que parecen popotes de la flor que sustraen el néctar..que bella mariposa, simplemente bella, sencilla, con su color liso completamente amarillo, en mi libro de insectos encuentro una muy parecida denominada "Mariposa Nerón". También me gusta el ángulo captado en la flor, esa perspectiva de la pose de la mariposa sostenida sobre una esfera. Tú siempre con algo diferente en el Mundo Mágico de las Mariposas. Veo que las Lepidópteras se han convertido en tus mejores modelos. Saludos Cordiales. Feliz Día del Amor y de la Amistad. (San Valentín) *Ninfa Urania*

Thanks for sharing.

Hola Ricardo,
Una barbaridad!! como decimos a veces acá, muy buen macro y detalles de las alas, la composición es muy buena con esas flores rojas y el amarilo de la mariposa resaltan bien con el fondo oscuro.
Ya no hace falta decirlo, tu nota es expléndida.
Tengo vistas unas orugas, espero tomar hoy unas fotos.
