Great capture Alejandro. This is from Heliconius genus. Did you know that scientists belive that these are the smartest butterflies?

Regards, Petru

Nice Alejandro!
Well composed and framed. I like it!

Nice shot Alejandro. Good detail and color with a great POV. Some OE spots in back but not bad. Well done & Thank you!

You have a good shot, the focus is on the subject and you have captured the detail. To make this a great shot you need to hit the destractions. For example, you might select the sun spots on the leaves that are bright and in your editing program apply a photo filter, green, roughly 15% to reduce the brightness. Also I would consider running a lite noise redcution process on the BG. Its a good shot, these are just suggestions to help you with presentation.


Hello Alejandro,

Personal assessment of the photo: very good.
Capacity of evocation in me: strong.
Strong visual impact.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Thank you very much Alejandro.

Bonita composición para este espectacular insecto, Alejandro.
Las lineas curvas y el color añade mucho a la prespectiva.
Sigo viendo que se podría forzar un poco más el enfoque, pero ya sabes que es que me gusta criticar. un bonita trabajo, entre los que más me gustan hasta ahora.
Que pases bien lo que queda de semana, Felipe.

Hello Alejandro, a very nice composition here. The butterfly is a very nice one. I like hte POV you chose. The body and head are sharp in focus and for this shot I would have liked to have seen the wing completely in focus too so a higher F stop would have been good.
