Nice close-up Silvio. Many layers to these wings and in wonderful detail. Framed well with the leaf. A very nice shot Silvio. TFS Trevor

Hi Silvio,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the Safflower Skipper butterfly. It is clear and sharp. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.
