Very nice photo. Nice colors! Did you try with smaller aperture?
Ron, the American version of Painted Lady is significantly different from the one we find here in India. However, it is quite evident that your species is far better looking than ours.
What a technically perfect capture, this!
The colors on its closed wings really make my day.
The composition with the pink flower is also mind-blowing in its aesthetic appeal.
Thanks for sharing this gem of an image.

Very beautiful photo of this Painted Lady in splendid saturated colours and excellent sharpness. Great DOF. Attractive composition.
Another great shot of this lady, great colours and focus with a nice background. (wish the european version had these beautiful colours anand markings.)
Thanks for sharing, regards Bill.

fantastic colours, greetings Ori
Ron, what you demonstrate here is that colors in the wings are formed by photonics effects (scattering of light) and not absorption as in dyes.

the spectacular colours and intricate details are beautifully captured in a fine composition. They don`t get much more striking than this.
An interesting note completes a fine up load.

Wow! What a beautiful set of colors to show off the butterfly and flower! it looks almost as if we are looking at something lit with neon lights. Technically perfect sharp, enough DOF to show us the subject and blur the background. Great work!
spectacular color variation, it looks like a totaly different species,
superb sharp details and great composition
Have a good night
No words for this and I wish to turn the points to four zero, excellent.
