A butterfly Agraulis species vanillae, resting after sunset. They are one of the most common butterflies in my region. Very good photos of this species have been published, they have orange coloration in the wings superior part, but it does not believe that there are many showing the inferior design of the wings.

Hi Hernan.
What a nice butterfly you have pictured. Its colours and their reproduction are simply wonderful as well as the great sharpness and details. I also like you vertical cropping and whole scenery. Sharp nice twigs and well blurred BG are looked very well. My compliments and TFS.

salut hernan
j'adore les formes de ce papillon,on dirait qu'il est profilé comme une voile de bateau de course.
tu aurais peu etre pu recadré un peu en supprimant une partie du bas de l'image,mais cela n'enleve rien a la beauté de cette photo.

This is a sheer beauty, Hernan.
Superb point of view, razor sharp focus, extremely rich colours and a delightful composition.
This shot is a class apart.
Thanks for sharing it.

Hi Hernan,

Hello Hernan,
excellent capture. POV, colors and sharpness are excellent. DOF is really good, sharp from tip to tip . Lovely composition.

Una auténtica maravilla a la que nos vas acostumbrando.
Perfecta exposición y acertado encuadre.
Una hermosura de mariposa con un agradable bg.
Saludos Hernán.

Hello Hernan,
This is such a beautiful capture. Even if there is no sun, this exposure is beautiful and natural. I like the pose of the butterfly a lot, those details and superb DOF and back ground. This is also a good composition. This is beautiful specie. Well done and TFS,

Hi Hernan

A very beautiful macro work here from you!
The composition you managed is wonderful and the shallow DOF made sure that the BG was nicely blurred here - isolating this amazing subject very wel.
The details and colors on the butterfly are terrific and the side POV is exceptional.

Bravo and TFS
