What a beautiful butterfly. It is shaped and formed so perfectly and the colours and patterns on the wings are just wonderful. I cannot find any fault in this striking image and can only sing praises. Your camerawork here is exceptional, the focus and sharpness excellent and the composition great. How beautiful is the view! It was a pleasure to stop by such a delightful and colourful image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Not only a technically almost excellent image, but also a very interesting one, because our European eyes are familiar with Vanessa cardui, and it's a different and very nice specie.
On "technically almost excellent" I mean composition, focus, sharpness, POV, pose are second to none, absolutely beautiful. But I feel the contrast a bit too few. That's why I made my workshop version.
Best regards from Hungary (Europe), László

Qué maravilla Paulo !!
Su gran poarecido con Vanessa cardui es asombroso. este año hemos tenido aqui una gran población de V. cardui por lo que esta toma es de agradecer.
Buena luz y excelente enfoque, por lo que veo esa Canon 1000 va de primera.
Un abrazo desde españa: Josep Ignasi.

Very interesting to see this beautiful Vanessa species from Brazil. I love the markings of the hindwings and you present it very clearly here. Wonderful natural colours and a fine background too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
