Ciao Pedro, great macro of fantastic butterfly, beautiful reflections, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Pedro,
Beautiful colored butterfly. Like those blue eyes on its wing. Well framed against dark BG. Don't know exactly where it's sitting on; floor or desk! It would have been more eye catching photograph if it sits on a leaf or flower.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Pedro,
Your Sailor is one beautiful fellow with gorgeous markings and a rainbow of color. A new species for me and as pretty a butterfly as I have ever seen. Great job of photographing it for us. I really like the straight on POV you chose.

Hi Pedro,
very impressive close-up capture of this iridescent blue-eyed sailor standing out against an almost complete darkness behind an elegantly mirroring stage in front.
Thank you! With best regards,
