Hello Mario,
Nice to see you back on TN!
The Owl butterfly is not an easy species to photograph, even in a butterfly house. This is a one of the best shots of that I have seen. Technically it is great and the colours and BG excellent.
Well done and TFS!
Have a good weekend,

Hi Mario,

How I would love to see an Owl Butterfly! It's easy to see how the species got its name. A marvelous position showing off both sides of the wings and fantastic details of the entire butterfly. I love the lighting and the composition.

Hi Mario.
What an impressive close-up of a splendid butterfly. Subject at whole is sweet. Great reproduction of the tree trunk and all beauties of the butterfly. Smooth light BG is reproduced precisely too. Well done and kind regards.

salut Mario

excellente macro photo de ce papillon avec un superbe focus
netteté et détails des patterns du papillon, TFS


Bonjour Mario,

La prise de vue rapprochée permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du papillon. Le flou de lNarrière-plan met en évidence l'insecte. Le sujet est bien cadré. La lumière environnante a un bel effet sur les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Bonjour Mario,

Ha!ha! il est super chouette ce butterfly.
Incroyables détails et couleurs.
Belles armature et ambiance.

Hello Mario!
Very interesting butterfly species, the "eyes" on its wings are really similar to owl's eyes :)
Sharpness, clarity and composiution are very good.
TFS and have a nice weekend!
