Hello CArlos,
an excellent shot of thi butterfly. Great sharpness and clarity. Nice perching position and great composition of this pretty and colourful insect.


This is remarkable species of butterflies, Carlos.
I wish you had done some research and appended a note with this picture.
The image is of high quality, technically. The focus is sharp and the details and colours are delightful.
All the best.

Hola Carlos,
a great picture of this skipper from a nice and more difficult point of view
which requires suitable depth of field. Sharpness of the wings is pretty good.
The blue colour is well reproduced. The species most probably belongs tho the genus Astraptes.
I posted a picture of a similar species from Costa Rica.
Best wishes, Peter

Wonderfull, Im amazed you got such good depth of field at f/6.3. That looks like a worn version of Astraptes fulgerator.
