[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a scorching Sunday afternoon when I took this photo. What I find curious about it is the fact the butterfly was landed on the ground, and things were really hot.

At first, it didn't want me to shoot, but, then, I could take several shots.

As for the title, in case you wish, check www.treklens.com/gallery/South_America/Brazil/photo23751.htm

On this link, there's another photo of the same butterfly.

Another great shot!
Great colours and composition.
Nice story with this little fellow. Polish butterflies aren't rather so sociable ;-)
Well done!

Livio, excelent capture of this beautiful butterfly. The lighting is perfect and your composition and details are well done.


Excellent work Livio. Colours and dof are just spot on and the composition is perfect for this one. It is a great capture indeed and you did a great job here.

I'm not too familiar with butterflies, but I must admit there are some real beauties, like this one, Livio. Brazil must be a paradise for butterflies, and I guess you are never tired of looking at them . Very good macro, hot colors, perfect details and very good use of the flash to even the light. Congratulations.

Livio, A superb macro with a high-level of detail/sharpness. You did very well with this under the harshest of light..It sat well for you..Probably suffering from heat exhaustion!! ;-0 Great work!!

Great post Livio, great details and colours.
Just a wee-bit too saturated.
Well done.

WONDERFUL! GREAT! I really love it!
