Hola Juan,
you captured the butterfly and its colours very well. The picture is nicely composed, the butterfly stands out clearly against the dead leaf. You selected the optimal point of view to get most parts of the butterfly in focus.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Juan,
Splendid shot of this butterfly with such lovely colours and sharp details. The dry leaf as BG works well here in highlighting the butterfly. Excellent top POV and a fine pose. I like the blue colour which looks majestic. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Juan. You are lucky to have such wonderful examples of nature's work around you but I guess you know that and your technical skill allows you to share these sites with us. Sharp, well exposed and colourful.
