Hello Jesús,
This is a fine sharp capture showing the underside of the wings of this nymphalid butterfly with excellent sharpness and colours. nice use of flash.
My limited knowledge of S. Amercican butterflies is confined to some species showing the uppersides of the wings, but the undersides are almost unknown for me!
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Ciao Jesus. Eccezionale cattura tra un magnifico gioco di luce calda contro lo sfondo scuro. Dettaglio e nitidezza al top. Grande composizione.


Hola Jesús,
de acuerdo con tus comentarios a mi toma ya que el fondo es poco académico, aunque la mariposa puede apreciarse claramente. Era un contraluz y salió lo que salió. En ocasiones hago decenas de disparos al mismo bichito; a veces sale algo bien por mi habilidad y otras de pura casualidad... eso es típico de la fotografía jeje.

Publicas una toma muy seria y desde luego elegante.Como siempre manejaste bien la luz, parece como si solo recibiera esta la mariposa.
Otra bonita especie Venezolana.

Abrazo. Buen fin de semana:
Josep Ignasi.

Such beautiful colour and fine detail in this shot dude !
Eees beauteeful !
Excellent low POV and good composition.
Very nice work Jesus.
Well done!
Cheers & TFS

Ciao Jesus,
uno splendido Ninfalide, ma non ti so aiutare sulla specie, eccellente nitidezza e splendido contrasto dei colori caldi di questa meravigliosa farfalla contro lo sfondo scuro, ottima angolazione di ripresa
Grazie e complimenti
Buen fin de semana

Hi Jesus,

You captured this butterfly so very very well. I love the pose with the raised head and the beautiful wing positions. Colors and details are perfect and glow against the dark background. A fantastic composition.
