[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There have been a lot of photos of Peacock butterflies here lately so I thought I'd post one from a slightly different perpective. I hadn't realised how elongated the butterfly's jaws are until I took this photo.

One of my posted pics is a Snout Butterly... it has a proboscis one has to see to believe! I guess in the Butterfly world, SIZE MATTERS!

Superb macro, Andrew!

Really great capture you have here. Excellent POV, really good sharp details, very nice BG and colors.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hello Adrew,
this is an excellent super macro from the Small tortoiseshell! Fantastic POV, framing and excellent sharpness too. Naturual colours, great exposure and very nice bg. This is an excellent composition. Thank you for posting.

Bellissimo particolare di farfalla!
Dettagli preziosi e ottimi i colori, bravo!

I like detailed point of view in Macro photography! That is what Macro gave us as possibility! It's a new kind of art. Possibility see in ugly features beauty and harmony!
