Hello Mariana,
A wonderfully shown image of this Red Admiral butterfly. Awesome detail and gorgeous colors. I checked out the photo you took on 7/30/10 and noticed a slight differance in color from this one. The underside of the back wing on this shot shows more vivid color and better detail of the wing patterns.
Sometime just for fun try a little flash on this particular butterfly, you will be amazed at the differance in color you get on the underside of it's back wing.

Hi Mariana,
A lovely capture of this beautiful red admiral butterfly. Excellent sharp details and a nice composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Beautiful composition & excellent details.
