Hello Jeroen
Wonderful capture from an interesting POV, great details, clear BG and beautiful colors.

nice lower angle, greetings Ori

Hello Jeroen
composition is very beautiful like the contrast on a background from the soft colors. Good hand of lights and shadows between the colorful butterfly and the delicate flower.
Fine details and contrast.

this looks a little bit like a Gulf Fritillary - Agraulis vanillae, but i am not totally sure as butterflies are not
really my "speciality". anyway, great capture with good sharpness and wonderful colors, love the composition with it
"refueling" on the nice orange flower. well done & best wishes, thor.

Hello Jeroen,
Nice and unusual POV. Not easy to manage the light! No idea what is it... Nymphalidae family. Cheers,
