I think this could be an Ascia Monuste (Great Southern White). Very common butterfly everywhere in Santa Cruz.

Hello Gabriel,
Excellent macro.
Lovely detail and colours,nice composition.
Nice work,very well done.

Hi Gabriel,
well describing shot of that soft winged White, with good details, soft colours, and very well managed expose of light parts against a dark background.
To increase the impact, a slight increase in saturation of colours might be tried out in postwork, and some noise reduction can be quickly done to clean the background.
I like the soft light that shapes wings and body very well in a perfect threedimensional way.
Thank you, and best regards,

Hi Gabriel

Nice shot. Very good exposure. Nice colour and clear details. Thanks.

Holla Gabriel! Nice details on this butterfly! I like the compo! Lights are very natural and soft.
(what a problem we have with the gas!)

Great shot Gabriel! I like the vertical position of the butterfly a lot! This is beacuse it's exceptional really. Focusing, pov, bg, lighting all are wonderful. Thank you,
