Ciao Roberto,
bellissima macro di Carcharodus alceae, un esperide che considero molto fotogenico e si possono ottenere eccellenti immagini come in questo caso, personalmente ritengo lo "sharp" al "limite", in quanto è abbastanza evidente il "riverbero".
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Roberto,

Beautiful composition of this skipper. The wonderful light & sharp focus have really brought out those lovely earthen hues & fine texture of this butterfly. The POV is choice & the bokeh is highly complimentary in highlighting the star of this show.

Regards,

Derek
