This butterfly is an inhabitant usual of our wet forests' edges. Today I bring a picture of this "Angled Leafwing" with his closed wings, where it can appreciate very well his mimetic skills. Tomorrow I hope bring a picture of this same butterfly with his open wings.

Ola Jesus,
Macro Espléndido. Muy bonito contraste de colores. La claridad y la información arriba, felicitaciones.
Un buen día,

Ciao Jesus, altra splendida novità per me, fantastica nitideza e magnifici dettagli, meravigliosa macro, bravo, ciao Silvio

You capture and share some exotic species of butterflies native to your region, Jusus. This is a fantastic capture of this species with its wings closed. It looks like it must have a grand scheme of colours on its upper wings. Looking forward to seeing that view.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Jesús,
Nice shot of this Nymphalid butterfly with its wings closed, the camouflage potential being obvious, but as you have taken sharp shot from a good POV against a contrasting BG it is clearly seen.
I look forward to the open-wing posting!
Thanks and kind regards,

Hola Jesus! Wonderful butterfly, amazing scene and scenery, nice lightness, very nice colours, good contrast and sharpness. Well done!

Hello Jesus,
I love this 'leaf' butterfly that has such perfect camouflage against the rainforest floor. I think I know the colours of the upper wings and look forward to your next pic!
Great capture, very sharp and lovely light and colours!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

An excellent capture of a slightly weathered individual in fine focus and exposure Jesus, you've managed the limited DOF of an f/3.5 very nicely here my friend, TFS indeed!

hello Jesus

great details and very good sharpness

greeting lou

Hi Jesus
Excellent photo...Excellent focus, color and POV...TFS

Ciao Jesus,
un'altra fantastica farfalla, ci dai l'occasione di conoscere tutte queste specie bellissime, che forse non avrò mai l'occasione di vedere nella realtà, ottima definizione con dettagli precisi e colori molto belli e luminosi, eccellenti punto di ripresa e composizione con la bella posa.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Hi jesus. This is a fine close up with the side view of this Fountainea glycerium . Taken with fine detail and rich colours. The size of the eye always looks so big for a small insect. Well taken TFs.

Hello Jesus,
This is a simple butterfly picture but it is so well presented and in a very natural way, that it is a pleasure to look at. The wings have a very special shape and a fine coloration and you focussed well on head and wings.
I also like the pose of the Leafwing on the green leaf, making some nice contrast. I can imagine that in a brown surrounding, we wouldn't see the insect.
Beautiful posting!. Thanks a lot
Kind regards

Hello Jesus
this shot is splendid ! they are so many sharp details on the whole butterfly
i like a lot the colors and the lighting
great composition and POV
Have a good night
