Realmente creo que nunca vi esta mariposa Hernan... o tal vez la vi y no me di cuenta.
Excelente captura por la composición vertical con la percha bien ubicada y excelente foco y nitidez sobre el insecto.
El desenfoque posterior es muy bueno resaltando el primer plano espléndidamente.
Aunque el bicho no sea atractivo, la presentación realmente lo es.
Gracias y un gran saludo... Ricardo

Hi Hernan.
What an exactness of the reproduction of this insect and ear. Great illumination, details and sharpness. What an excellent selection of the DOF, blurriness and colourfulness at the BG. Composition is perfect too. Bravo, my friend. Skillfully done. TFS and best wishes.
