I chose the title above because I was at the campus of a college when I took this photo. In fact, I was there to try to shoot some hummingbirds, but that didn't happen.

Livio, good macro. nice composition. Lovely colours but from you, I would like to have seen an image which was a little sharper. You can do it.

Hi Livio
At least, you nailed something!
Very nice b'fly, I believe they are poisonous to eat.
He sits on lantana, a pest and declared weed in SA, but still a nice flower!

Salut Livio!
Excellente image de remplacement (au lieu de colibri).
Un Monarque, je crois, ou un Vice-Roi.
Jolies couleurs et une bonne composition.

Good macro Livio.
Very good colours nd composition.
It's alot of noise, but still a nice picture.
Well done.

Muy buen colorido el macro de esta Monarca sobre una Lantana.Si deseas informacion sobre ambos detalles puedes ver estas Web.http://www.naba.org y www.floridata.com/ref/l/lant_c.cfm.

Another nice macro from you, Livio. Thanks a lot for bringing these warm colours into the cold winter (at least it's winter here where I am at the moment). The photo is a little bit fuzzy but still great. TFS.

En esta imagen encuentro varios puntos a comentar... el DOF excelente pero la agudeza no lo es.
Los colores parecen saturados, no sólo en la lantana (lo cual es habitual) sino también en las hojas verdes.
La composicion y POV son realmente agradables de esta mariposa tan conocida tambien por aqui.

Puedes ver una imagen con sus alas desplegadas y casualmente sobre lantanas en
Monarch of the sky
y otra con un POV similar sobre la flor de un cardo y sus alas plegadas en
Monarch of the sky 2

Livio, Very colorful capture composed very well! Apparent is a small degree of noise/softness to your image that has detracted somewhat. :-( TFS

Hi Livio, nevermind the hummingbirds!! This is a great shot, nice bright colours.

Hi Livio

This is a really nice shot. Has some noise in the image but still very nice to view. TFS

It could be superb pictures but noise or heavy compression killed the effect! Composition and colours are exceptional.

The colors are stunning and I like the composition. The sharpness is not quite a sharp as your recent posts, but still an excellent shot.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Essa borboleta é realmente uma das mais belas que eu conheço. É uma "Monarca" e é bem venenosa também... hehehe A fotografia está ótima!
