Nice cammo jacket this b'fly is wearing. Good catch and note too.
Very good shot Ricardo.
Where is the insect ? ;-).
Nice colors and good details.

Intéressant cet étonnant papillon qui se confond dans le feuillage ! Joile photo bien composée.
Well done Ricardo !

Brilliant! You did an exceptional job in capturing him in his natural environment to show us his camoflague ability. Very well done Ricardo. Nice contribution.
How well he blends in. I'd like to see the blue upperside of the wings, do you have a picture? Great shot Ricardo, and good note too.
Ricardo, This is a most excellent depiction of camouflage found in nature. Do I understand correctly that this specie actually changes its colors similar to say a chameleon? Great post!

Almost a perfect match Ricardo, the greens are beautifully seen. the leaf mimicry seems a universal theme in the insect world and the butterfly are better than most.
the image is very nicely sharp front to back, even the shadow from the leaf helps to show how it blends in with the BG.

Otra buena foto Ricardo, lamento haberte afectado al apetito. En esta me gusta especialmente los verdes que consigues con los diferentes tonos y contrastes. En increible como la hoja que esta detrás de la mariposa proyecta sombra sobre la misma, si la luz viene del otro lado; o la sombra corresponde a otra hoja y coincide, no lo entiedo muy bien.
Por cierto fijandome descubri el reflejo de tu objetivo en el abdomen de la mosca que publicaste :)

This guy is a master at camouflage. The sharpness and DOF is great, and I like the composition too. I have never seen this butterfly before. Thanks for posting
