[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Junonia was shot in north Misiones a few Km south to Puerto Iguazu. the butterfly was resting in a cultivated forest and flew right after I took the shot. its the only shot I have of this specie although it is not rare at all.

Hello Silvia,
Welcome to TN! You've posted an excellent shot of the Tropical Buckeye, very sharp and in wonderful colours. I like the composition and the background colour too!
Thanks and regards, Ulla

hi Oz!
what a magnificent nature photography!
colours are superb and the razor sharpness of this beautiful creature is outstanding!
thanks for sharing this masterpiece!

What a magnificent butterfly! I think that the image should have been cropped. The green leaves on the right do not add much and distract the observer's eye.
