Hello Jose,
What a beauty, this photo. The light and colours are splendid. Impressive sharpness and details and a pleasing diagonal composition. Very good blurred background.

Wonderful as ever...this one is really one of my favorite little creatures! What a spectacular shot, Jose! Bravo!

Bonjour Jose,
A very cute butterfly which I love too. A picture presented with a well chosen centred composition. Fine colors and light too. The sharpness could be improved a little bit.
Kind regards

hi Jose,
such a splendid butterfly... green butterflies are not so many in here... this is new to me... good clarity but a bit low sharpness. never mind, your subject is amazing!
and did you say 'rubi'? :D

wonderful composition and capture, with great photo performance!
regards Jose

Hello Jose,
Marvellous capture of a very nice butterfly. superb colors and excellent details.
Thanks for sharing!
