[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After hours of torment, this was the most acceptable shot of Macroglossa Stellatarum.
No big deal, but is an attempt to capture this Speedy Gonzales!

Hello Horia !
I love these butterflies, but they are SO hard to capture ! You have done a great job with this one ! The insect is pin sharp, with excellent details, but I also like the colors, the composition, the POV and the blurred BG. Lovely contrast between vivid red flower and soft green BG. Very well done !
