Hallo Sky,

Very beautiful butterfly!
I like the red colour! Looks like "on fire"!
Very good DOF!
Very good on details!

I can't help you with the name but the it is beautiful.

Hallo Sky,
Da hast Du aber Glück gehabt! Meistens erwischt man die Longwings nur mit zugeklappten Flügeln. Es sei denn die Sonne scheint und es ist schön warm! Deine Bestimmung des Flattermanns stimmt auch. Sehr schöner Bildaufbau, hast die Diagonale voll ausgenutzt. Super! Sehr schöne Farben und auch Schärfe. Danke für das schöne Schmetterlingsfoto. Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Restsonntag und alles Gute für die kommende Woche.

Hallo Sky,
Elegante Komposition und wohltuende Farben.
Die relativ geringe Tiefenschärfe hat den Körper nicht ganz erwischt,
aber denoch: Schöner, erfreulicher Beitrag, für den ich Dir danke.
Schönen Tag noch! Mit besten Grüßen,

ID: Could be "Heliconius hecalesia (Hew.)" from somewhere between Costa Rica and Columbia.
That longwing species varies quite a lot in its markings.

Hi Sky
Looks like you suddenly found a new niche with your butterfly photos, and you are really doing swell. Unfortunately I can not help with the ID, but I'm sure it will not be long before somebody does help.
You have a lovely composition with nice colour, good DOF with sharp detail, and nice BG. The exposure was also well handled.
Good work and TFS.

Très beau papillon aux couleurs vives. La netteté et l'exposition sont bien réussies. J'aime bien la composition avec la position inclinée du papillond. Bravo.
