Hallò Jeanpaul:
¡Magnìfica! Me gusta esta mariposa y sus colores. Creo que le falta un poco de nitidez a la toma, pero igual es muy agradable.

Jean Paul, the image could be sharper. Besides, there is overexposure in some areas. Anyway, the butterfly is a beautiful one.

Hi Jeanpaul,
A very nice shot on this Brush-footed Butterfly. Beautiful colors and patterns in the wings. Looks good.

Hello Jeanpaul,

Bonjour JeanPaul,
Sharpness could be inproved, looks like the focus is on the leaf instead of the butterfly. Bg is a little bright, but i like the pov and composition.
tfs paula

Superbe papillon,les couleurs peuvent etres douces et jolie,sans être criardes. Thomas

Bonjour jean-Paul !
Ce papillon est tout simplement öagnifique, avec les belles couleurs de ses ailes - j'aime tout particulièrement ces ocelles qui me font penser à la queue d'un paon. La composition est belle, tout comme le POV. L'image manque un peu de netteté et le fond est un peu surexposé, mais je saia à quel point les papillons peuvent être difficiles à photographier parfois, et cela restge une jolie photo. Bien joué !
