Hello Hernan,

Good name for your photo. Indeed there is a bing contarst between the disorganized mud structure and the beautifull construction of butterfly's wings. Sharp image and good color rendering enhace the contrast mentioned before.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Herman.
Excellent shot,very sharp with great colors,very interesting POV,

Hallo Hernan
This week time is critical; however...............................I cannot pass without telling you that this is a great image with stunning colours and patterns. I love the way your subject fills almost the entire frame. It just brings out the details so much clearer and closer. Also good change of background as we are so used to sky or greenery as backdrop. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Hernan,
Très bel exemplaire de cette Agraulis vanillae se complaisant dans la boue. Très beau contraste de couleur entre le gris et la couleur orangée des ailes.
Meilleures salutations

Hola Hernan,
a beautiful picture of this also beautiful butterfly.
Clarity and sharpness are pretty good.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Hernan,

Excellent capture of this butterfly in the mud. Great sharpness and colours. Beautiful colours and excellent contrast against the ground.

Hi there! Nice composition and great colors. The contrasting colors of butterfly from the mud is also nice. The butterfly stands out from the ground. And it really is the "jewel in the mud". :)

Hi Hernan,
Outstanding shot of this beautiful butterfly with such lovely colours and crisp details on its wings. Probably it was mud puddling. Superb handing of light and exposure levels. I like your top POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Very nice Hernan,
Truly a "Jewel in the Mud", perfect title for this.
Everything looks very good mf..
Color, exposure, DOF, & details R excellent :)

Hola Hernan.
Existe un marcado contraste en esta bella imagen, en donde la Mariposa resalta aun mas con sus bellos tonos de colores en sus alas.
La foto es muy nitida, y con exelente iluminacion. El recorte elegido es ideal para la presentacion.
Saludos Y un abrazo Hernan.

Hola Hernan,
Your POV shows us all the details and patterns of the wings. Very well composed and exposed capture. Gracias y saludos,

Hello Hernan!
This is a real jewel on the mud! Great contrast and very nice colours - so vivid and natural (and perfectly saturated!). DOF and POV are also very good as for me. It is also nice to know species name (I like to know what I am looking at :>).
Best regards,
