[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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

Very good picture! It did indeed improve

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