Hello Luis,
you show a beautiful portrait of this butterfly. Wing pattern has been often shown at TN, so you add a nice point of view of the species. 'Julia's' head in pretty good focus and sharply presented.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Luis, you chose well! This has a great POV and has drama about it. Wonderful sharpness and vibrant colour with good DOF. It would make a great poster.

Hi Luis
At first i thought it is not nice to have wings croped, but now i change my mind. i love the contact with those eyes and wings act as heding u to those eyes. very nice shot with perfect sharpness and details.
Well done
