[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken at Mocambo Park, a place I used to visit a lot in order to take pictures. Unfortunately, the place is becoming more and more dangerous. A friend of mine, who is a photographer, almost had her camera taken away by a thief who was at Mocambo Park. They usually go to the place in order to do drugs, and once they're there, they may be dangerous.

As for the identification, I have no idea.


Added later: by looking at the picture, a question aroused: might this be a juvenile monarch?

Hello Livio,
I'm sad to read those notes about this park that I don't know but I think that this is a pity that you can't be safe there and just enjoy nature… This world is going crazy…

This is a very sharp capture, well composed with natural exposure and good color saturation. It looks like a Monarch to me but I don't know much about those little creatures ;) Well done and TFS,

Another beautiful butterfly in a superb compostition. The flowers are as wonderful as the butterfly. Marvelous colors - excellent details - a background that makes everything stand out - and a thing of beauty.

Hi Livio,
WOW! beautiful macro! Vibrant color saturation and tack sharp detail from the spot on exposure. Perfect OOF backround. Flawless composition and framing. Great camera work!

Hello Livio,
Exciting colors in this super macroshot the colors are really exciting and fun. That soft background is pretty intense with the saturated greens, it almost has a posterized effect. :)

Hola Livio,
this is a well-focused and sharp picture of
- Lycoraea cleaobaea ssp. halia
- Nymphalidae / Danainae
The wing pattern is presented very brilliant and clear and is in nice colour contrast to the background.
Best wishes, Peter

P.S. Butterflies do not grow. They emerge in their final size from the chrysalis.
