A Glorious Begum Agatasa calydonia
Taken at a butterfly farm in Cameron Highlands. This fellow was feeding on some bananas. I really liked the interesting colours and found it to be quite unique.

Reposted: This is a much improved version based on the feedback I received on my original post. Thanks to all those who offered their advice. This is precisely why I think TN is so wonderful :)

Muy buena republicación Mike... la imagen es mucho más nítida, con el fondo más difuso y los colores más marcados.
Me gusta el POV obtenido a la misma altura del insecto con adecuado foco e iluminación, además de un acertado encuadre.
Saludos... Ricardo

Very good republication Mike... the image is much clearer, with the most diffuse bottom and the most marked colors.
I like POV obtained to the same height of the insect with appropriate focus and lighting, besides a guessed right framing.
Greetings... Ricardo

Nice POV, details and colours. Much nicer with the decreased saturation. The whites look much better in this version
