Note: I was fortunate to discover this butterfly in the early hours of sun. She was capturing solar energy through their battered wings (probably damaged by pecking birds that escaped). I sat in the bush under the foliage where the insect had landed, and from its shadows got this picture.

Hello Hernan
This backlit butterfly is a gorgeous image, especially with the dark background which shows off the colours even better. Your a true photographer getting up so early and waiting for the perfect moment to capture this image. Tac sharp and wonderful composition.

Hello Hernan,
An unusual low POV which I like very much. I love the way the natural back lighting has illuminated it's wings. Beautiful rich colors and sharply focused. The dark BG worked out perfectly in this particular instance. Impressive!!

Hello Hernan,
Happy New Year my friend (although late) and have a nice year.
Beautiful captured of this butterfly. We must learn from it how to use Solar Power. Excellent color and sharpness.
