Hello Marius,
This is a new copper for me, and a real beauty at that. The underside wing markings are simply gorgeous and arranged in attractive patterns as well as randomly placed eye spots.
Love the exceptional detail you managed to obtain and the while balance seems to be right on the money. Nicely framed and displaying a clean blurred BG. Great shot!!
