Unfortunately there is a broken tip to the top of the wing.

Waited for the sun to shine through in order to get a better exposure. Hope TN member will like it.

Hello Kean,
regarding that you came close to this shy and fast flying species, the picture is pretty good with respect to sharpness in particular of the forewing, head and antennae. A slightly different angle could have produced more sharpness also on the hindwings. But often optimal conditions cannot be achieved.
Best wishes, Peter

Hola Kean,
Bellos colores además de gran nitidez, la composición mejoraría si se hiciese la toma un poco mas frontal, de todas formas no le resta belleza. Saludos

Hi Kean.
You have created really great close-up picture. Perfect details, nice colours, excellent DOF and POV. Beautiful exposure and lighting. The shot is well composed, the note is useful enough. Well done and my best wishes.

Hi Kean,
A nice shot on this Common Bluebottle. Some nice quality light and a good exposure have the colors and detail in this looking good. I like the unique colors and wing patterns of this butterfly.
