Sharpness not at its best, but a valuable documentation of the Yellows from Cuba, Luciano.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Luciano,
Another interesting specie of butterflies. Lovely colors and details. It seems that your trip to Cuba was an excellent moment to take some shots of superb species of butterfly.

Hello Luciano,
Very nice photo of these butterflies. Beautiful natural colours and a fine composition. Good sharpness. If I look on facebook you have enough material to post for the next year.
Enjoy the weekend,

Ciao Luciano, gran bella coppia di cubane, dai colori vividi e in piacevole attività, luce difficile, ma te la sei cavata alla grande, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hi Luciano
Nice macro of this couple, caught with sharpness and a good dof.
This species are common in my country too.


Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation cadre bien les papillons. la prise de vue rapprochée permet de voir les détails des papillons Petit coliade en action. La lumière donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
