Bonjuor Pierre,
Very nice close-up for very beautiful Vanessa virginiensis ..
Focus, POV, colors and composition very nice.
Best wishes,

Hi, Pierre
This is a nicely sharp image of this butterfly, but the species is Vanessa cardui, which can be determined by the wing shape, the lack of blue-centred spots in the hind wing and the white (orange in virginiensis) second bar in from the tip of the forewing. I would have preferred a crop with less space behind the butterfly, and a little more in front, but that is a matter of taste?
Best wishes, Nigel.
