Absolutelly perfect, I wouldve probably cropped one more inch off the left wall, but thats minor nit. Gee, look at that beauty, wow, such colors nd xposure. No sun and no flash was the secret.

Hi Luis,

WOW what a butterfly.
detail are really magnificent, the colour, the form, BG, POV... everithing is perfect.
this will be one of my favorite.

about using the flash on highly reflective surface, i have observed if that is used in a good angle (a low angle), there are very good result (observation made specially on moth)
