Very nice colorful picture. Good sharpness and nice colors.

Cool shot, plenty of detail in the wings and well exposed. The head looks just a touch soft and I think the butterfly needs a bit more room around it to show off. Background is good.

Beautiful shot and great colors with detais Ricardo.
The flower is also beautiful and seems that the butterfy like it very much.
See you

Hola Ricardo.

Hi Ricardo!
Fantastic colors! Excellent composition, POV, DOF and details. Great work!

Hi Ricardo,
Colourful, exciting picture!
Very well composed in a classical way.
One thing only: The blue seems to be slightly oversaturated, but that may be on my monitor only.
Powerful, pretty and cheerful contribution
that well deserves to go 50+.
Thank you! Best regards,

Hola estimado Ricardo, estoy un poco atrasada en disfrutar de tu galería, cada vez tienes mejores y más bonitas imágenes de mariposas, creo que ya se han convertido en tus grandes amigas y modelos. Que barbaridad, estas venas de la mariposa me impactan, me pregunto cómo y para qué las diseña de esa manera la Madre Naturaleza, esos trazos en negros, blanco y gris deben tener una función y significado, las hace muy diferentes le dan profundidad y aumentan la textura de las alas. Su abdomen perfectamente ocultado por sus alas, eso le da una pose diferente a la modelo. Muy acertado ubicar la cabecita en el pétalo de la flor, asì podemos apreciarla con mejor claridad aunque creo que es algo dificil de obtener con gran nitidez. Esa planta exótica es muy bella solo que brilla demasiado, dificil de captar también.. afortunadamente no te afectó mucho la composición. Saludos Cordiales. Felicitaciones por que siempre mejoras tu trabajo. Feliz Fin de Semana. *Ninfa Urania*

Hola Ricardo,
Esta Danaus nunca la vi y me gusta más que la vernácula. Excelente macro y detalles, en cuanto a los colores, apenas hay un poco de azul enciertas partes, pienso que es aberración cromática o algo así; pero de todos modos es muy buena.
saludos desde Monte, Argentina

Hi Ricardo,
Very nice capture. Perfect orientation of te wings to the camera to maximise DOF. Stiking colours and composition.
