Hello Pedro,
What a fine looking Tiger-eye hairstreak you have presented to us. Excellent detail and beautiful wing markings. I love the contrasting black, white, brown and chestnut colors of its wings. Nicely framed with just the right exposure.

Hello Pedro,
Beautiful coloured butterfly. Well captured if talk n its exposure as well as on its details. Very nice BG too. I like its POV too. But in my opinion, it could have been more eye catching view if you could framed it vertically. In such way you could get rid of unwanted BLANK SPACES (although you managed nice BG) and giving more space in front of the butterfly, composition could have been better too. So, no question of solving the problem of 'PLACING BUTTERFLY HEART OF THE FRAME' :-)
Thanks for sharing,

Clear and colorful pose for this butterfly. The colors match the flower very nicely!
