Hola Jesus,
high quality as usual for your pictures. I like Junonia species. The genus is species rich in the Afrotropical region and it was a pleasure for me to observe many different species in Tanzania and very unique ones on Madagascar. Perhaps, I should travel to Venezuela, to see alos this one in its natural environment.
Best wishes, Peter

Hola Jesús!
Mi madre siempre dice: "tal como son las cosas, también lo son las criaturas..."
Tu mariposa mi hice piensar en estas palavras.Veo que ella está tan herida por la vida y luego se va a la muerte.Pero tu estavas alli para sacarla una foto y entonces, la mariposa tuvo su último momento para brillar.No es bonito piensar eso? Y que bela foto tienes aqui para nos emocionar.Una composición lo mais estética possible con un BG envidiable.Eres un artista,Jesús! Y mucho me alegro que lo seas!Gracias por compartir!
Un abrazo!

Hello Jesus,
Wonderful presentation of this butterfly. Colours are splendid in a beautiful contrast. I also like sharp details, composition, POV and OOF BG.

Another great photo Jesus! The composition, the BG, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.

Nikon in your hands works very well,Jesus .. another delightful species from the kingdom of butterflies ... maybe you had to send someone to Curacao, because I saw only one yellow and hectic
