[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I do not know exactly the kind of butterfly this is. But I marvel at the complexity of each and every one of their structures. The hairs of his eyes, antennae designed to pick the most delicate aromas, its proboscis.
This butterfly is feeding on flowers Rosmarius. It is very important to have flowers in the winter. With these insects that help us in the garden feed.

Hello Roberto,
This butterfly is a wonderful insect with amazing colors. Thanks for sharing!
My new D 610 works great. I need time to learn how to use it.

Hello Roberto,
A nice close-up of this pretty little butterfly. I like the way you can easily see it's proboscis searching the interior of the flower for nectar. You are fortunate to still be able to photograph butterflies at this time of the year. We have quite a bit of snow on the ground here in Ohio, so it will be quite sometime before we see any butterflies.

Well captured macro Roberto!
Great clarity and colour.
I am also like the way you present this image of Lampides boeticus.
Best wishes and have a nice weekend.
