I found this specimen at Las Nubes Reserve, I wish it landed somewhere where I could take a shot with a better composition, as I know the composition on this shot is non existing, however I couldnt resist to upload it because the beauty of the butterfly itself.

Thanks for stopping by

this is a beautiful specimen and superb picture of Marpesia marcella (family: Nymphalidae).
Colours are amazing, focus and sharpness are excellent.
Really a nice presentation of that species.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Simon,
what a beautiful butterfly!
fantastic colors, great pose captured!

best regards,

Hallo Simon
What a most beautiful butterfly. A great presentation of colours. A remarkable creature with clearly visible details and markings. You managed to capture this beauty in a lovely pose, very close to the eye and to appreciate the finer details. Great focus, sharpness and composition. A definite PPPP – Pretty, perfect, picture photo. A very delightful image, and indeed a strong coloured butterfly. Thanks for sharing.
