Hi Mark,

Well let me see now this must be a lesser spotted Bolivian Highland Butterfly if im not mistaken, lol,

Now this is a really sharp and incredibly colourful Butterfly, with amazing markings, good composition and shot in its natural habitat, very nice picture indeed Mark,


Hello Mark
Interesting species and beautiful photo with good composition, wonderful colours and good sharpness. In my WS you can see an experiment with your photo. It is just a proposal. I hope that you will like it.

Hi Mark. Nice photo. The scientific name of this butterfly is Junonia evarete.
