Queen and Ted Nugent have songs entitled “Spread your Wings”. Since I like both, I decided to use the title here.

I have no information to give you the identification of the butterfly. Therefore, please, feel free to supply this.

I'm looking forward to summer. Until then, I'll have to enjoy images like yours and others. Well done.


A "heavy" title for such a beautiful butterfly, when you use the name Ted Nugent !
As said, a beautiful one, thinking "I won't go away", with a lot of colours, also in the flower and green, good sharpness, good shot !

Livio, Beautiful creature this one. I cannot find it in my book, sorry. Very nice.
Greetings, Jan

VERY NICE LIVIO!! Great DOF & detail. Eye catching color. What else could you ask for in a butterfly shot???!!! Well done!

Beautiful colors - set against the green leaves, it shows up the butterfly very strongly.

All I know is that the plant is called Lantana - considered a pest for a long time in Australia and now in NZ. The butterfly is beautiful - we don't get that sort in NZ.

Beautiful shot ! excellent macro.
The green leaves set him off~ fantastic colours !
You did very well ! good work :)

Very good shot Livio, good color balance.
The flours are a bit distracting.
Well done.

Buena presentacion Livio... personalmente hubiera rotados unos 20 a 30° la imagen para darle una perspectiva más estética.
