Hi Jose,

Good capture of this nice colored bitterfly,good exposed and detailed,In my opinion the composition would even have been better if the butterfly was a bit more placed to the middele of the composition,

Well done and TFS,

Hi Jose,
A very lovely and enjoyable capture of this Gatekeeper! The golden brown colours come out very well and focus is quite good. (Perhaps I would crop it in order to remove the blossom that is out of focus.)

Hello Jose
You've made very good picture. The colours and the composition is great. Thanks for sharing


La atmosfera capturada es esta es un deleite. Que suave pero enfocado al mismo tiempo. La luz esta realmente controlada. Se me antoja un pelin pegada al lado derecho de la foto.
Los colores setan muy logrados. Un buen trabajo!


Great POV, great light, great DOF, great compo, and beautifull colours.
