Hi Marlon,fantastic specie and fantastic pic,a beautiful gift to all the butterflies fans of TN!!Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano

Wonderful colours and nice capture. It look like the butterfly`d catch the bee in front of him.


Hello Marlon
this butterfly is superb, i love his blue and white colors, and you have captured it with pin sharp details, excellent diagonal composition, the fly just in front of his face is a great bonus
Thanks a lot for sharing
