Achei estas borboletas interessantes , pela forma que se encontravam, parecia que a imagem estava sendo duplicada ou refletida, elas estavam se acasalando, o processo demorou mais ou menos 10 minutos tempo suficiente para eu consegiur capturar esta interessante foto.

Hello Nilson

What a wonderful composition.
The symmetry is lovely,like a mirror image.
Excellent light and rich,vibrant colours.
The focus is sharp with very good details.
Terrific POV.
Well done


Ciao Nilson,
spettacolare accoppiamento di queste bellissime farfalle catturate con ottima definizione in una splendida composizione dalle belle simmetrie, eccellente POV, magnifici i colori ben saturati.

Hola Nilson,
Una imagen fantática das tuas borboletas, efectivamente parece duplicada, làstima del pelín del ala de la superior, una gran nitidez y uma moito bella composición.
Saludos cordiales.

Hi Nilson,
What a good and interesting image!
Certainly it looks like a mirror, but then the subtle differences in their yellow hues make it clear that are two different butterflies.
Excellent focus and lighting.
Great work and thanks for share.
Best regards,

Hi Nilson,

Excellent capture of the mating couple. The shot has become a very symmetric and artistic one by your successful timing. Great details and colors.

Hi Nilson,

Olá Nilson.
Um belíssimo casal de Papilio thoas (Papilionidae), muito bem registrado por você!
Cores fiéis e ótima nitidez.
O contraste com o verde da folha realça ainda mais os detalhes.
Parabéns pelo feito!

Hi, Nilson, again.
Simply amazing shot of this charming pair of butterflies. I like superb exposure and reproduction of the insect colouration and other beautiful details. Leaf as a BG is reflected so nicely as main subject. Only cropping on the right side a bit strong. My kind regards and TFS. Thanks for interest, kind comments and nice pictures during 2008.
