[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture in Iguacu. One of the most beautyful places on earth.
I found that butterfly - Caligo betrao as one of you told me - right next to the waterfalls. This butterfly was huge, about 12x16cm. I like the "big eye" to bluff the predators.

I changed the picture, because I rescanned it in much better quality.

Hello Georg,
Though this shot is a little soft and noisy, it is a distinct improvement on the org.
Pity that it is so close, otherwise this shot of a Caligo has a good comp and BG and as this was scanned you deserve credit.
TFS and regards, Ivan

Hi George,
this is much better than the other one.
You manage well with scanning and even it is a wee bit soft and some noise in the BG. Nice warm colours and good composition. I like the DOF too. Maybe the bright green spot down right is a bit distraction but that is a minot nit.
Well done.

Hi again Georg ,
nice shot and great details.
nice colors and well composed.
thanks and regards.

Hi Georg

Nice capture of the Owl Butterfly. I like the diagonal of the leaf in the frame. Well done!

Hola Georg:
Magnifica toma! Esta mariposa parece tallada en cuero y recortada como una figurita.
Gran nitidez y detalles, con colores que van en degradè, tanto en la mariposa como en la rama y el fondo difuminado.
Buena iluminaciòn en esta compo.

Ola, as Caligos como sempre proporcionando belas imagens ao publico, goste da composição, as cores do fundo ficaram suaves e bem coerentes. Parabens pelo trabalho, muito bom. Abraços.

hi Georg,
très belle image, le papillon entre tout juste dans le cadre. L'image est un peu sombre, mais les détails sont bien conservés.

Hice shot, perfect DOF and POV. Lovely colours, good details and a good composition. As everyone mentions it is a bit soft but that will be down to scanning
