Dear friends and visitors,
When I was passing by my garden I saw this little butterfly.I think it was feeling not so good...Poor little butterfly.I am not so sure but I think it is going to die...Fortunately I was lucky enought to take some pictures from it.
I don´t know its ID ,but I hope someone here could help me as always happens.
Big hug from,

Bonjour Ana,
Je pense que ce papillon n'est pas si petit...il est en tous cas magnifique et il s'est posé à l'endroit idéal pour te permettre de faire une jolie photo. La lumière est bien gérée, l'environnement naturel, les couleurs magnifiques, bref une très belle image!
Merci aussi de ta gentille visite auprès de ma libellule

A nice specimen of this species captured in artistic dappled light, Ana. Sorry to know it was not keeping well.
The picture is technically superb and esthetically attractive.
Thanks and regards.


Hallo my friend Ana
This is a very beautiful image. The contrasting colours fit so well together, perfect like a hand fit a glove. I like the angle in which you have captured it, showing details of the butterfly's front, a side we do not often see. It is a pity that a beautiful butterfly like this where not doing to well, as nothing in the image shows that the butterfly was not at its best. Thanks for sharing a lovely macro. Best regards.
