Holy Juan,
that's phantastic! The species is very well introduced. Focus and sharpness are pretty good. Although not a very colourful species, it is attractive by the particular wing shape and the soft colours.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Jaun,
It's been a while. Welcome back to TN. :-)
This is one of an amazing creature in Colombia. Looks weird and fantastic to me.
Excellent details with nice POV, well composed too.
Well done and TFS,

Hi Juan!
WOW! I have seen many, many species of butterflies in my life but shape of this little one is simply amazing! It is fantastic to see how huge is diversity of life! This photo is excellent example to proove that there is always ne to see :)
According to the technique I would like to say, that only DOF would be a little better to keep entire body of this specimen in the focus. Anyway, your presentation is really important contribution to TN and thank you for that!
Best regards,
