[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
A time ago, I published my first image of a Butterfly Monarch (Danaus plexippus erippus) with its wings extended on flowers of Lantana.
Few days back, I discovered one of them put on a thistle, but in this case with its closed wings.

Like in many species, the differences of color or drawing between the sides of their wings vary substantially, according to the necessity to mimicry or not with their environment.

In the case of the typical subspecies of these latitudes, their trips are not so extensive.
Depending on his origin and conditions of temperature, they can arrive until 1500 kms. between the ends his of emigration.

Lovely sharp capture, the colours are particularly good.

Very good one, Ricardo. The monarch really fills your frame well, and the textures and colors on its surface are very well rendered. Ideal placement of your main subject on the flower, and good DOF.

Ricardo, tanto la iluminación como los colores están realmente conseguidos, la composición muy buena, lo único que me permito criticar con toda humildad es que parece estar inclinado hacia la derecha, no se si porque lo rotaste tu, o simplemete es una impresión. Por lo demas, una verdadera belleza.

It almost looks like the wings are hand painted. Very good capture with excellent DOF and sharpness

This is a very good macro photo. It is framed well, and has great sharpness. Congratulations.

Ricardo, belas cores novamente. Estou enganado ou existe algum ruído ao fundo? Ótima nota.
