[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I spent about two hours trying to photograph butterflies in a small field while in Nicaragua. There were a number of flowering plants growing throughout the area and the butterflies were out in full force.

It was a bit of a challenge as it was quite windy and the sun was very bright most of the time. A few scattered clouds would give me some decent lighting for a few minutes and then the sun would eventually pop out in vengeance.

This pretty White Peacock was a brand new species for me. I was therefore thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph it.

An opportunity that must be avail, that I search for. Excellence of composition.

Incredible capture, Ron! The 3 dimensional impression comes through strongly in this first rate professional image.
The species is new for all of us here on TN, I'm sure. It is a beautiful species. Perched on lantana flower, it makes a beautiful composition.
Goes to my favorites right away!

Hi Ron,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the White Peacock butterfly. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
