Piekny maly miernikowiec. Dobra fotka. Fajna kompozycja z motylkiem w rogu, ladne rozmyte tlo z lisciem. Moze bym zrobil lekkie higlights reduction aby nie bylo widac lekkich przeswietlen na bialym wzorku

Hi Marx,this is a very strange specie,never seen in my country,i like a lot your perfect point of view,no better way to show this spectaculars wings! Excellent sharpness too,my best compliments,Luciano

Excellent placement of the subject in the frame! This is a very good composition, the exposure is also good, the details are amazing. If i have to pick a nit, then it would be that the wing tip below is soft! The best way to overcome is go parallel to the subject, by doing so you can bring the entire cross section of the butterfly within the DOF

Hello Marx,
Interesting to see some moths, this one having beautiful wing-patterns. It has a fitting Latin name too. Pleasant diagonal presentation and good sharpness.

Olá, Marx!

Wonderful POV, nice texture and colors, and
good focus. Congratulations and TFS!
