Hi all!

This is the result of my last weekend (Weekend Assortment), the same way on my last post, and actually I'd like to say thanks for your kind comments.
I don't know the ID, but maybe you can help me.

I hope you like it.

Ciao Francisco, wonderful butterfly on a fantastic flower, splendid colors, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Francisco!

I can't help with the ID, all I can do is to say that I like your picture very much. The butterfly and the flower form a superb couple and create a strong impact on the viewer, mainly because of the well pronounced colour contrast. Moreover, the lighting is superb and the interplay between the darker and the brighter parts is well managed.

Kind regards

Hi Francisco,
Waw.....amazing capture!
Details are fantastic!
Colors are beautiful!

Fantastic arrangement with beautiful colours, Francisco, you are so lucky to have these fascinating butterflies in March in your country, we still have snow, now single insect outside - perhaps some deep-frozen ones ;-)
Thanks and have a nice day

Ciao Francisco. Waiting for the spring here is snowing again.... Fantastic playing of light and bright colours with excellent details. Delicate close up MF!


Hello Francisco,
Excellent composition with very nice tones. I like the constrast between the light butterfly + the bright red flower and the dark green background. Very good sharpness too. Cheers,

Hallo Franscisco
I am on my way for a days training in Durban, but had to stop and tell you that I like this image very much. The vibrant orange of the flower in contrast with the soft lime green of the butterfly is so great together. And the eye …………the eye is marvellously captured.
Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Francisco.
Perfectly composed and captured at amazing POV picture of a very beautiful butterfly. Its details are reproduced greatly. All features of the butterfly (as well as details of the cute flower) are shown excellently. I like impressive smooth BG too. Well done and TFS.
