What colors this butterfly has!
Nice shot!

Hola Ricardo:

Que bello ejemplar el de hoy día. Aunque pareciera que hay una sobreexposición en la madera (donde poso la mariposa).


Hi Ricardo,
It's a nice picture with good POV and colours.
Good details. But some parts are overexposed.
Well done.

Such an unusual-looking butterfly, Ricardo. I have never seen this one before. Too bad there is a bit of overexposure at the bottom of the wing, but probably hard to avoid with the white on such a bright day. Very interesting markings on this beautiful butterfly. Well done and TFS. : )

Nice shot Ricardo. Beautiful butterfly. The photo has some exposure problems though..

Ótima foto, as cores estão ótimas! Gosto de borboletas e essa ainda não conhecia, está muito bonita!
