This kind of perfection in imagery is why I asked originally why you deleted so many but now perhaps we start with a blank tablet...to fill anew..the Buddhists do the most wonderful sand paintings which are so artistic and worthy and at the end of the day they sweep them away..to sow that all things in life are not permanent...but today you have here a wonderful image...it reminds me a bit also of what my good mentor and friend Jack Leung told me...music is not music unless it is played...this is a wonderful musical image !

Hello Jose, I am glad that you left a critique on my picture, so I could discover your beautiful gallery. This picture reminds me the grace we find in japanase painting, it is perfectly beautiful and graceful. To see such a stunning butterfly on orchids is a feast to the heart. A piece of art and thank you,

Hello Jose,
Brilliant capture of this beautiful big Moth settled on a lovely flower. With the help of the flash you show the details very sharply and the colours are beautiful. We saw a very similar big Moth on Trinidad.
