Hello Seyfi,
Excellent light falls on the underwings of Vanessa atalanta. It allows us to see all the details of this rather darker side of the colorful butterfly. Beautiful composition and cute pose on the leaf, which is well integrated in the picture.
Fine and natural colors too.
Thanks and kind regards
