Una foto muy buena Luis! Me encanta la silueta y perfil que tiene esta bella mariposa, está bien enfocada y tiene un fondo genial que no distrae y ayuda a exaltar a la mariposa. La ramita de abajo no se si distrae o compensa habría que probarlo cortando y borrando la ramita, pero entonces sería otra foto. Repito, la pose con sus patitas tipo caballito, alas subidas, cabeza y antenas elevadas hacen que tenga uno de los perfiles mas bonitos que yo recuerdo haber visto. Mi más enhorabuena. Un saludo.

excellent pose in your lovely composition, great the performance!
regards Luis
