[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
It was taken at "Biocentro Güembe", a beautiful bio-center-park 6.5 km from Santa Cruz. It has also an orchid nursery, a butterfly-breeding farm, landscapes and a restaurant. So, you could relax and take a good food in this place.

About the photo: I didn´t have enought ligth to take it, and I had to use the FLASH to get a better sharp, and I got a black background that I loved. By the way, I didnt use the PHOTOSHOP for this pic.

Hi Alejandro,
this is a marvelous butterfly, the design and the colours, wonderful. You captured him with good sharpness and light.
I also like the black BG, nothing is disturbing, very good, thanks

Una foto realmente excepcional por lo único de su composicion. Es impactante el rojo estampado con la mariposa perfectamente alineada. Para mi le sobra fondo negro, pero es una cuestion de gustos. Un buen trabajo.

A foto está excelente. Nitidez, cores e o fundo ficou muito bom. Só acho que está muito "centralizada", com isso o workshop do Wishnu melhorou a posição da borboleta.
De qualquer modo uma ótima foto.

Very original, interesting and nice composition
Well done!
Regards, Krzysztof.

Wonderful photo!
Great colors, great use of space. I love the composition. Very artistic. Fantastic!

Interesting shot Alejandro!
It has great POV and good composition. Details are nice too though the wing seems to be a bit soft. Flash created nice black BG which works great, but unfortuanatelly also made some overburned areas on the wings.
Anyway, I like the photo very much.

Impresionante fotografia, Alejandro. Detalles perfectos, colores impactantes, situacion curiosa, reune todas las caracteristicas de un buen trabajo.
Muy buena la presentacion, quizas el encuadre sea un poco amplio para mi gusto, pero un sobresaliente para el resto.
Un saludo de circe.
