Hello Pedro,

Hello Pedro,
Considering this was taken with a cell phone it is quite nice. You have framed this pretty little blue very well. Even though it appears a tad soft on focus and a bit grainy in the BG, you've given us a great look at it's beautiful wing markings and colors.

Ciao Pedro, not your best macro for this lovely butterfly, lack of sharpmness and OOF, wonderful colors and splendid light, ciao Silvio

hallo Pedro
