[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This time I found many of this wonderful butterflies. It is a pity that they was over this white flowers and it is so difficult do have it equalized, specially when we don´t have many experience shooting butterflies, or even shooting macro. But here are the couple of butterflies with transparent wings. I have some other shots to post later. Next time I will shot it with lower speed and higher f/stop trying to have a wide phocused area, from wing to wing. This butterflies stay for some time in the same flower, but all time walking around it.

Realmente uma foto fantástica, me agradou muito o ponto de vista e composição.

Hello Jose
Beautiful colours here on your butterfly! The transparent wings look iridescent. The lighting and detail is great. A interesting species of butterfly.

Hi Jose

This is really superb!!!
Not only one specimen of this beautiful species of butterflies, but 2...wow!
Their wings are definitely amazing and your POV allows a great angle for the trasparency!
Good DOF and colors, too.
The contrast here between the bright flower in the center and the rest of the frame is a little strong for my taste...maybe a small fill-in flash wouls have helped bring out some more details from the darker areas...as a thought :)

Anyway, Bravo and TFS

Gran claridad y estupenda composición. Por cierto, esas mariposas son muy bellas y las he conocido gracias a treknature.

Hello Jose,

Not one but two butterfly on one picture, the blue and red colours care for a attractive picture. TFS.


Hello Zeca,
They are beautiful insects, well captured!
It is a pity they love white flowers but then you handle that challenge well here...
The macro work is well done, good colours and details in the insects!
