[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know that F/22 or something would be the ideal procedure here, but, once more, I must say that my camera is limited to F/8.

Anyway here's the picture.

The shot was taken some 10 kilometers away from my town.

This one goes to Geovane and Hellen. They were with me, and not only spotted nice insects, but also watched an ox that was around and seemed about to attack us, while I was shooting. Fortunately, the ox didn't get mad.

Belle et intéressante composition photographique pour ces superbes papillons. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté. Moi j'ai du mal a voir des papillons et vous vous en avez cinq sur le même cliché ;-)
Well Done !

You've captured a special moment Livio. Your picture is very colorful and all butterflies are perfectly in focus, a good DOF. Well done and well composed. TFS!

Belle composition Livio, l'environnement fait bien ressortir les papions.
Le fait que chaque bourgeons ais sont papion en fait une très belle photo.

Félicitations et bonne journée.

Having a party are you? :D very nice composition, great colours and nice DOF. :) Nice work! Not many people can captured butterfly's party. Thanks for sharing.

What a lovely splash of butterfly, Livio!
Most of us have problems finding just one to shoot and here you are with a colony. Very beautiful composition, thank you for sharing it with us.
