Hello Roberto,

Hi, Roberto
This is a lovely image of a species that I have not yet managed to see. Depth of field and image sharpness are perfect, although there is no Exif data to study the exposure settings used, and very nice composition. I am also happy to see attention to maintaining natural colours - there are too many wildly over-saturated postings on TN nowadays.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Roberto, che meraviglia!!
Straordinaria cattura, con effetto 3D. La farfallina mi sembra attaccata al mio monitor!
PERFETTA! la bella non ha un pelino fuori posto, la possiamo ammirare in ogni particolare.
Composizione ECCELLENTE, con uno sfondo splendido, in perfetta gradazione cromatica con i bordi della farfalla.
BRAVISSIMO! Complimenti.
Ciao! Vanda

Ciao Roberto, altra bellezza zzurra, magnifica macro, fantastico effetto 3D, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Brilliant shot, Roberto. The blue colour on the wings is very attractive.
The bottom branch could be cropped off, IMHO.
Best regards.

Hello Roberto,
Outstanding macro with fantastic focus and sharpness.
Spendid details and perfect exposure as usual.
Perfect natural colors and very nice composition.
The clarity is absollutely amazing!

Nice well focused composition with this blue at the top end
MAybe a bit oversharpened, causing the blue to show a little pale? can't really judge at this size
