[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After some caterpillars, a butterfly. This one was pretty close to the caterpillars I've been posting recently. After all, this is another shot taken in that same farm located some 12 kilomenters away from here.

The butterfly above was right beside a brook with clean waters. In order to shoot, my feet were inside the little stream, and I had to take care to not to wet the camera.

At first, I thought it wouldn't be possible to shoot, since the insect was just flying around and landing for just some seconds. But when it found the little rock above, I could easily take several shots.

Excelent Capture, Livios. Tiger Swallow tail Butterfly. Beautiful and well done on this composition. They aren't out yet cause it's still cold, they are common here too.


Halo Livio!
What wonderful stones! Great colour and texture. And of course your butterfly - just perfect!

Lovley shot Livio. The colours are superb and the butterfly against that BG provides a beautiful contrast. Very well done.

This is very nice Livio and quite a different BG, colours and details all very nice, well done.

Perfect capture Livio!!! Focus is perfectly set on butterfly's wing, textures and colours are superb. But don't forget about BG and composition. I can say that this lava-like colours on BG is one of the best I've ever saw!

Exceptional shot!
Colours are simply outstanding. The datails, as always razor sharp. There is only one word that can describe this photo and this is "perfect".
I love it.

Superb capture livio! Razor sharp with excellent details and color..Very well done! PS I've been after the butterflies a bit, but this on the ground business and stalking them is for the birds ;-)) They see you coming when you are above that way..I like to let them come to me..waiting for the flowers I've planted to bloom...

Excelente nitidez e lindas cores da modelo, além do fundo que ajudou bastantão na imagem.

This looks like it could have been taken on another planet! Amazing strong colours here, really vibrant. Great detail on your subject. Well done

BRAVO !!!!!

Je l'envoi directement à mes favorites.

Very good capture with great angle and very good colours on the butterfly, the colours of the background seems to be unnatural, they are too red, I think.

Fantastic macro, Livio. I can't believe how sharp the details are, on the whole butterfly. Great pose, exposing the full design of the wing. Beautiful colors and composition. Thanks for another gorgeous photo. : )

Superbe composition photographique pour ce magnifique papillon. Splendides couleurs chaleureuses et excellente netteté.
Very well done !!! Congratulations !!!

Excetional contrasting colors, Livio. Really impressive capture. Details are sharp and a great DOF. Very well done.

otima composição, o colorido do fundo ficou bem intenso e ainda por cima combina com detalhes da borboleta... parabens

Hi Livio,
I like the one-plain point of view of the buterfly, it's colours and the BG!
It's almost posible to hear the stream!
I read your intro and agree completly with your way of understanding the "sound of silence"in pic!!!

The combination of the crispy colours and the background is very nice, a beautiful "vlinder", superb sharpness and light, great !

excellent ! i like the sharpness on each and every part of the butterfly, and the red, uncommon bg is great too. 1st class !

wow, this is almost perfect, TFS Ori
