Hello Jose.

Gorgeous picture of this small butterfly on his branch.

Perfect point of view, allowing us to see the details of the wings as well as the details of the legs and from the head from the insect. Dynamic composition, with a good placement of the butterfly inside the frame. Excellent sharpness and excellent depth of field perfectly managed. Colors properly saturated.
