Very good details, lighting, background, POV, composition, focus and sharpness. I like the upside-down pose :o)

Can't help with the ID on this one but it is a fine photo. Good use of f/11 to keep the insect well focussed but keep it distinct from the background. Excellent detail showing the scales on the wings.
PS - Blashford hides were closed today, but my dad says there are Redpolls there and also a Bittern has been spotted. Had good fun at Cadman's Pool and I'll pop a link to some video footage I took of the birds up there once I've uploaded it.

Excelente trabajo, aunque creo como he dicho alguna vez, que abriendo un poco más el ángulo, la fotografía mejoraría.
Un excelente documento.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi.
Feliz Navidad para tí y los tuyos.

Sorry, no luck with the ID of this upside-down butterfly from my side either. Great details and lovely rich colours make this one pleasing on the eyes. I'm not sure if it is typical of this species or weather it was just by chance, but it is interesting how some butterflies tend to always perch on the under leaf and not on top.
Well done and TFS.
PS. I am rather pushed for time this year so please pardon me for my short comment. It is more important that I want to wish you and your loved ones a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year. May this Christ-fest and the imminent 2009 bring you everything that is beautiful and admirable, provide all your needs with blissful abundance, present you with that which is edifying and inspiring, grant you blessed peace and harmony, and bestow upon you a myriad of worthwhile pleasures and breathtaking moments with close friends and dear family.
