[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this specimen in my backyard resting on top of this leaf, this specimen must be an old one since the wings are so worn. I saw this species in great numbers during the months of October and September and I did not see them again during the year.Does anybody know if this species migrates? from where to where?

Hi Simon,
Your green butterfly is composed on dried leaf pretty very. Topping colors, good light and acuity.

Hello Simon,

You have made a good close-up of this butterfly. Your image has a well adapted DOF showing sharply most of the insect. Wings pattern and colors are nicely rendered. The dead leaf makes a good background for the butterfly.

Thank you for sharing,
