Fantastic photo Jesus!! The butterfly, the POV, the composition, the BG, the colours, the lighting and the sharpness are excellent.
Welcome back.

Ciao Jesus,
spettacolare ritorno con questa fantastica farfalla, l'assenza da TN non ha certo arrugginito le tue grandi abilitÓ fotografiche e la qualitÓ Ŕ sempre elevatissima, spero che tu abbia il tempo per poterci allietare con le tue splendide immagini.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona domenica
Ciao Maurizio

Ciao Jesus, bentornato!
Magnifica composizione. Immagine perfettamente nitida, con impressionanti dettagli della farfalla....fantastiche le nervature delle ali.
Ottimo il contrasto con lo sfondo quasi uniformemente verde, che esalta benissimo il soggetto.
Ciao! Vanda

Hello Jesus.
Welcome back!This is an excellent Nica flavilla canthara capture. Very sharp, nice DOF to keep the butterfly and its wings sharp, especially fore ones, yet yield the nice soft background.
Best regards Siggi
