[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot of a Dingy Purplewing while in Nicaragua. The butterfly was fairly small and I was using my 400MM lens which I normally use for birds

Feeding on dung, rotting fruit and sap they rarely take a liking to flower nectar. With a wingspan of 1 7/8 to 2 inches they are not a very big butterfly.

它的色彩真是美麗 還會有些光澤反射
配上花的虹色 很突出的搭配 也很融洽

Hi Ron,great shot showing us this small butterfly on the strelitzia plant,a very bright and sharp capture in a colorful composition,interesting post as usual,especially for the butterlies fans like me..ehhhe..have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Another fine catch of an exotic species of butterfly from Nicaragua, Ron. The nether wings on view in your picture are so very colorful. I guess it might be a visual treat to see it with its wings fully open.
I also love the way you have composed this shot.

Ciao Ron, lovely composition with beautiful butterfly on nice flower, great macro, wonderful bright colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Ron.
Belle composition que cet ensemble.
Bien joué.
Bonne journée

hallo Ron
great composition with beautiful colours and good sharpness
i like this
thanks gr lou

Hello Ron,
Like abstract like BG. Quite well captured this butterfly. Good details and colour. It could have been more attractive if there would be no yellow flower part in its back; but what we can do! It's natural.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

A very nice result! Beautiful butterfly and picture. I also like the combination of the colors.

Hi Ron,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the Dingy Purplewing butterfly. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.


Hello Ron
