Hamadryas arete (Doubleday, 1824)
Hello Marlon. Welcome to TN
Beautiful butterfly and impressive first photo! The composition, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.
Welcome on TN. Excellent shot of this beautiful butterfly to start with.
The POV is good & great sharpness. Well done & TFS.
I've done a workshop on your pic. Hope you dont mind.

an excellent picture of the underside wing pattern of that species.
Light exposure is perfect as detailed structures are seen also at the dark wing surface.
Point of view and background design are optimal.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Marlon, Welcome to TN,
Well what a way to start with this beautiful entry,
Good detail throughout and perfect sharpness, i particularly like the low key out of focus background,
Perhaps the support is a little overexposed and distracting, but nevertheless a superb shot,

Wonderful image of this butterfly. I especially enjoy the contrast of it's colors with the snowy-like tree lichen. Great focus & sharpness & clever greenish-blue background. Very well done!
