Hi Eyal,
Very lovely shot!
accurate colors and details. good BG and POV!
If I may correct you it is a pupa and not a cocoon (which is made of silk and is around the pupa in different moths species). hope you don't mind me saying..
anyway, great shot of this beautifull Papilio and TFS!!!

Beautifull moment!
Great picture and composition. Perfect colours - thanks

Hello Eyal, great shot at a good time!! Composition and details are perfect. I have the feeling that the butterfly is a bit overexposed. Any way good work, best regards, Didier.

Very good picture and very good capture of this moment.

Un gran momento el captado con la pupa y la mariposa. Muy buen color de fondo y nitidez.
Un saludo
