The White Peacock (Anartia jatrophae) is a species of butterfly found in the southeastern United States, Central America, and throughout much of South America.
The males of the species display a unique territorial behavior, in which they stake out a territory typically 15 meters in diameter that contains larval host plants. They perch in this area and aggressively protect it from other insects and other male white peacocks.

Hi Luciano,

Wow!! You captured this White Peacock in an amazing position. A wonderful frontal view and those wings are fantastic. Great timing to get this one. The butterfly is so sharp and the colors are beautiful. I love the composition and how the wings nearly fill the frame. Wonderful setting and composition.

Ciao Luciano,
una splendida macro di una bellissima farfalla, della quale ci mostri un'inquadratura che ne esalta il comportamento, dopo che ci avevi già mostrato la bellezza dei colori delle ali, ottima definizione e bellissimi colori luminosi.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona giornata

Hola LUciano,
magnifico pov,
fina composición y detalles,
saludos amigo.

Hi Luciano,
Very well composed and great timing.Good exposure with great subject definition.
erwin...

Grande POV e uno sfondo impressionante! La definizione degli elementi intermedi di sfondo è molto attraente.

Sto prendendo una passeggiata attraverso la vostra collezione di foto. Vorrei acquistare una macchina fotografica bridge, e mi piace raggiungere i risultati che con il vostro Sony DSC. Ovviamente il suo talento ha molto a che fare! ma ho sentito molte cose buone da Sony DSC bridges, e quello che vedo sono vere.

Saluti.

TFS
