Hi JeanPierere,
Lovely image of this one, which for you opened its wings completely to show how beautiful it is. what a great design by nature. The image is colorful, sharp and with pleasing BG. Vertical frame would have avoided the dried leaf/stem (right side). TFS

Bonjour JeanPierre,
this is a nice picture and specimen of a female Junonia andremiaja (Family: Nymphalidae).
The male looks quite different and is even spectacular. I could observe the species at several sites in Madagascar.
Best wishes, Peter

great composition and contrast of colours!

Ciao JP, fantastic butterfly with superb colors, splendid details and excellent sharpness, bravo, ciao Silvio
