Entiendo poco de la regla de los tercios para la composición, pero creo que aquí las has roto de forma magistral. Las flores del lado derecho, captadas y ubicadas perfectamente, entregan mucho carácter al conjunto. De más está decir que los detalles de la mariposa, la luz y su nitidez son muy buenos.
Excelente resultado, gracias por compartir.

Very attractive shot Ferran,
Even the colors of the BG seem to compliment the Chocolate browns and oranges in the beautiful butterflies wings.
The lavender flowers are a nice addition, and the fine detail you've captured makes this a real beauty!!

Un papillon de grande beauté que je n'ai encore jamis vu. Tu nous le présentes avec une image fine et à la coloration très subtile. J'aime beaucoup ce mélange de brun, ocre et violet. Magnifique!

Congratulations on your 300th posting.
Very nice photo of this Spanish Gatekeeper. Beautiful natural colours, contrasting against the flower and OOF BG. Excellent sharp focus. Good POV and composition.

fantastica foto in cui tutti i particolari sia dei fiori che della piccola Pyronia bathseba sono ritratti in modo eccezionale. La messa a fuoco da quella giusta profondità di campo che mette ottimamente in risalto i soggetti e portando in primo piano per farceli meglio apprezzare dettagli e colori grazie ad una sensazionale gestione della luce.

Your favorite hunting-ground, Andalucia offers beautiful flora and fauna. Pity, when coaches disgorge hordes of tourist,a lot gets trampled, destroyed...
The layout of your photo is so pleasing to the eye(the rule of thirds triumphs).
The plant's common name 'Midnight Blue' is fully justified by the natural, brilliant colours of your photo ('Throatwort', another common name is rather less romantic.)
The perfect depth of field shows in detail the tiny hair on the edge of the wings - and the way you positioned yourself - allows the pistil stamen touching the Butterfly, hereby emphasising the rich orange/brown of the scales.
A fitting photo to celebrate the exhibition of your 300th photo.
Enjoy the rest of your day,
Congratulations and Good Wishes

well composed, well detailed, pleasantly well lighted portrait of Pyronia bathseba, a species that is new to me, and not often seen yet on TN. Well informing short notes that are offering the identification of both butterfly and flower, which is very much appreciated. Valuable contribution. My congratulations also to you for your posting #300! Thank you!
With best regards,

Excellent. The composition is perfect, colours outstanding and the background is nicely unobtrusive.
