[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Thank you Peter for your kind help providing the ID for this butterfly:

Ituna ilione

Altrought it looks like it was taken at night it was actually mid day when I took this shot, but it was underneath the canopy in a cloudy day, so I had to use the flash.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ótima imagem do que parece ser uma Thyridia psidii. Grande composição, nitidez e enquadramento.
Até a próxima.

Hello Simon,
This is a real beauty of a butterfly! I also like the surroundings you caught in this shot. Very nice to see the reflections of the wings and the interesting perspective created by the fern-plant(?). It would be nice to transfer the name of the butterfly( given by Peter) in your note.
Very well seen.
Kind regards

Ciao Simon, superb macro of fantastic butterfly, splendid light and colors, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
