This butterfly must be having very attractive colours and patterns on its upper wings, Jesus. Next time, try to capture it in that aspect. Hopefully, some expert should be able to give you its ID.
The image is very sharp and crisp with lot of details on its nether wings.
Well done and TFS.

Ciao Jesus, altra bellissima mai vista prima, mi dispiace, non posso aiutarti con il nome, magnifico il disegno delle ali nitiudamente ripreso, splendida macro, bravo, ciao Silvio
A fine capture of this nymphalid with its wings closed.
This species, Anaea clytemnestra, that normally keeps itself hidden has a remarkable camouflage colouring and pattern on the upper surfaces of the wings. You were lucky to photograph it so well and in such a fine position on the plant.
Thanks for sharing this fine image and its nice to have you as a neighbour!

Outstanding image of a beautiful butterfly and so wonderful plant. Both of them are reflected with highest skill at a very impressive direct POV. All is superb including reproduction of coloration of the insect and all its features. Details of the leaves are also ultimate and BG is nice and smoothed pleasantly. My kind regards and TFS. Well done.

Interesting species, in very sharp focus. Good exposure despit the difficulty of the sharp contrast in wing colours. Thanks.

Con ese "estampado" no es fácil hacer que se diferencien los ojos y otros detalles; aún así lo conseguiste en gran medida.
Sigo babeando de ver lo que tenéis por allí. Algún dia iremos jajaja.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi.
