[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Encontrei esta velha borboleta em uma área rural próxima a Goiânia. Nesta época do ano, aqui no Centro-Oeste do Brasil, quase não chove, tudo é muito sêco e é muito difícil encontrar borboletas perambulândo entre flores, na verdade exitem poucas flores. Esta borboleta pousou em um caramanchão de espinhos, como pode ser visto no canto inferior esquerdo da foto, por sorte consegui registrar.

Paulo, que bela foto.

Excelente profundidade de campo, o que deixou toda a borboleta em foco.

Belas cores e ângulo; excelente nitidez.

Greetings Paulo, good shot. The butterfly looks a little weather beaten! I've not seen this before (I think!) It's a nice composition with good details. With butterflies flat like this I like to see bith wings in focus, the left one here is just slipping out. I also think the picture could do with a little contrast. Well done.

Inspite of it's "age" it's beautiful.
The photo it's a bit soft on focus, but shows well the butterfly.
