Looks like you have a very good butterfly garden there.
Fine shot, perfect composition, sharpness, exposure and DOF. Seems tp mainly occur in the Philippines in the wild.

Hi Mario.
Once more superb photo model in front of you (and me :)). Simply amazing POV and wingspread of the splendid butterfly. Reproduction of its dark colouration, shapes and all other details are outstanding in all respects. Smooth neutral BG is great canvas for the beauty. Bravo. Perfect close-up.

Hi Mario,
I gladly see that your skills and talent in macro photography is not poorer than in using telelens (bird or on TL motor racing photos). Brilliant focus / sharpness, nice colors, wonderfully blurred background - a real masterpiece without doubt. Bravo MF.
Friendly regards, László
