Hello Pedro,
What a fine looking butterfly you have presented to us. The marking are gorgeous and the colors are very beautiful. The focus is tac sharp allowing us to view it in exceptional detail. The exposure is perfect. Well done!!

Hi Pedro
Fantastic macro of this interesting butterfly, excellent clarity and sharpness, excellent composition, very nice BG, very beautiful colors of the wings.



Hello Pedro,
What a beautiful butterfly specie. Superb colorful wings.
Excellent image quality....

Hi Pedro,
Beautifully composed photo with perfect light management (I love your flash usage here). The upper edge of the wings form a semi-diagonal line, which makes the entire composition very spectacular, especially when supported by excellent sharpness and wonderful warm color tones (lovely white balance!). Majestic shot. Bravo!
Kindd regards from Ireland, László
