[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little butterfly (its wingspan has approximately 2 centimeters) was flying around, and I was "chasing" it. When it stopped, it was easy to shoot. The butterfly landed on the floor. In order to shoot, I rotated the monitor of the camera, so that I didn't have to lie on the floor, although it wouldn't be a problem.

In the area, a place where orchids are raised and commercialized, there were other butterflies, but I managed to capture only this.

Ce beau papillon est bien mis en valeur par votre jolie photo. Bonne PdC et couleurs agréables.
Well done !

Nice shot Livio, Don't know how you managed it F/2.8! Very narrow DOF but it looks like you picked up the whole butterfly from your camera angle to subject. Great color & detail. Well done!

Great shot Livio, the large aperture has created a lovely DOF, making the butterfly really stand out.
Excellent clarity, good exposure control (even in the whites) and good note too (even if you haven't identified it).

La prise de vue et l'environnement sont parfaits. Le gravier au sol s'hamonise très bien avec le sujet. Les couleurs et la netteté sont très bien. Le DOF super.

Merci pour ce beau travail et bonne journée.

Hi Livio!
Very clear one today. I like composition, moment and colours. Looks like it is drinking something directly from ground :-) DOF is perfect.

Excellent capture Livio. Exposure is well done on the whites. Detail is superb especially around the wings where we can see the hairs. Well done! TFS

Great shot, very good POV and details.
Well done.
