Bonjour Jesus, belle composition, la juxtaposition du papillon sur un fond de galets est du plus bel effet. Colors that blend well and perfect framing too; Well done, Best regards, Didier.

Ciao Jesus!
Questa farfalla č uno splendore. L'avevo giŕ notata l'altro giorno, ma non avevo tempo per commentare.
Ne hai fatto un ritratto fantastico! Totale messa a fuoco con superbi dettagli. Luce splendida, che si riflette suglio occhi.
Complimenti: bravissimo.
Ciao! Vanda

Hello Jesus
Great capture of this beautiful butterfly, great details and colors. Well Done!

Buenos dias amigo Jesús!
This is just the type of butterfly shots I should die for (to be mine...). Opened wings, perfect sharpness, spectacular color tones - and my special fav: pebbles as background! No need to say more, this is a real masterpiece! Absolutely fabulous job, hats off of you. Please, if / when you'll have enough time, be more active on TrekNature, I'm looking forward to see new shots of you.
Have a great 2013, best wishes, László
