Hello Thijs,
What breathtaking colors of this butterfly! You have selected a perfect POV, I like the life that takes the picture thanks to pose "hanging" of this butterfly, that produces a pleasing visual rhythm. The light is all a wonder and makes the details of the wings are perfectly measurable. I see some changes in tone (little areas of the green BG) around the legs and mouthparts, I think they are remnants of the post processing, but they are almost imperceptible. Greetings, Thanks, Jesús

Hallo Thijs,
Geen alledaagse vlinder. Maar ook in een vlindertuinder kun je prachtige exemplaren fotograferen, zoals deze. Bijzonder goede details, erg mooie kleuren en een heel goede compositie. Uitstekende diepte in de foto.
