[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I'm not familiar with the different types of butterflies but I enjoy photgraphing their beauty. That's why I titled this photo "Gimme-A-Name". If you have a name for this beauty, please let me know.

Hi Edgar,
Probably a "Square-Tipped Crescent", in Latin Eresia phillyra. Very good colours. Just a pity about the white area of the background interfering with the antennae.

Congratulations for the lens. This Tamron is a very good one. I like this green and the composition. I consider this white in background is a little hard.

Hi Edgar ,

Very nice capture of this beautifull insect. Very nice vivid colours and nice BG. Very well composed


Hallo Edgar
Besides the white in the background that is a bit disturbing, this is a beautiful image of a butterfly and a delight to look at. It is really gorgeous insect with lovely colours and patterns in its wings. Maybe not the best in other people's opinion, but a great view for me. Thanks for sharing, and have an enjoyable day. Best regards

Hello Edgar,
you show a beautiful butterfly and a nice picture. The species shown is Heliconius ismenius.
It clearly does not belong to the genus Eresia. For example: see here!
Unfortunately, the elft part of your picture is heavily overexposed.
Best wishes, Peter
