Jose, this a stunning image of a Blue butterfly.
It is rarely seen with its wings so wide open.
The focus, blue colour and composition are perfect. Despite large size of the image, there is not even the slightest aberration anywhere.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Jose Ramon
A spendid close-up of this vivid and strikingly beautiful butterfly - Polyommatus Icarus.
The details sure are terrific - pin-sharp and rendering the exact texture of the butterfly well.
The natural contrast with the green BG is also very nice, making the butterfly stand out even from the thumbnail and making its colors pop even better.
Good control of the exposure and the DOF, too.
Bravo and TFS

Hello again Jose Ramon!
Lovely, so blue and sharp picture of Lycaenidae butterfly. Timing is perfect, the wings are fully opened showing fantastic tones of upper side insect.
Comments to such pictures are not easy, everything is so good that there is nothing to critique :)
All the best,
