You and Luciano have both posted stunning butterflies in top quality images. I love the bold eye spots and beautiful markings of this Pearly Heath, what a gorgeous specimen. Fantastic detail and wonderful lighting. The composition is quite eye catching and the white balance is just right. Hopefully I will start seeing some butterflies here as well.
