Hello Pedro,
What a gorgeous butterfly your have posted, the colors and markings are stunning to view. I love the bright iridescent blue colors edged in black bands.
Taken from an attractive angle and displaying much detail. Great exposure and excellent DOF. Well done!!

Que increíbles azules y violáceos!!! Gracias por permitirme conocer tan bella mariposa de tu tierra. México es un país muy querido por los argentinos, siempre bello; tierra de gente valiente y luchadora. Espero que tu patria logre lo antes posible una paz interior que termine con el sufrimiento de tantos hermanos. Aquí, en Argentina, tememos mucho algo parecido. Las condiciones, lamentablemente, están dándose. Dios ayude a nuestras naciones.

Un abrazo.
