[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As promised, this is the same butterfly of yesterday, this time with its wings spread. I was shocked to see the incredible orange color with shades of gold, I can not believe that with open wings is so striking, while with their wings closed can easily pretend to be a leaf. These are the things of nature always pleasantly surprised me. I hope you enjoy this curious butterfly.
