[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This butterfly was in a school. Shooting was not easy, for there was some foliage. Besides, light conditions were not that good. I could have tried a higher ISO, but this, in my camera, produces noisy pictures

Hi Livio, I think you made a very good job of it in the low light conditions, can you find out the ID of this butterfly? The details are good and it's a very nice composition, well done.

It is not your best shot,
but you decribe the conditions and for that you did do a very good job, he is very nice in pov, the details are good, very good job,
gr. Jaap

Very good shot Livio!
You did a great job on this. I think it looks very good, the colours are great and so are the POV and composition.
Well done!

very nice shot Livio,
Very good detail, colours, composition and sharpness.
Really well captured. I get to try out my new macro lens today, the sun has made a welcome appearance.
Thanks for posting

Wonderful macro Livio!

The details are fantastic, crips & clear and I just love the warm light in this picture. Good POV & DOF and the green of the leaf is a perfect contrasting BG-color. Well composed. TFS!


Good macro shot and very good colours, I think that you should lower the camera a bit because it is too high angle to my opinion.

The wings look like beaten brass. Very attractive. Nice details due to excellent sharpness and POV. Nice work. Thanks
