Nice and interesting specie. I never meet it in my region. It has very nice colors. Perfect camouflage for woodland....
Well exposed macro with good sharpness, but probably due to the dull colors, it lacks - for me - the "wow effect". I mean, it's a good photo, but compared to your very high standard a little bit flat. On the other side, I know this species is very difficult to photograph, and you did everything you could in order to make this photo spectacular. It's just... not spectacular. Again: for me. Just a personal opinion. I hope you don't mind that I told it.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

yes, this is the big butterfly I am chasing since 19.. with little success. But you present it as if it was the easiest thing to shoot. Well done. The camouflage is striking: it disassembles the body and melts into the environment.
Have a good weekend, cheers, Dietrich

A nice picture and presentation of this beautyfull one.
We have them here but not very easy to find them and very difficult to get near of them for a picture.
You gave us an excellent information about them. Thank you.
Have a good weekend.

Beautiful picture this Brintesia butterfly. Sharp picture with good details. In such situation, none can achieve a OOF background, due to the distance of those straws and butterfly. Bit flat and distracting. Here in such situation, I play with exposure to make background darker than subject and in such way picture stands out.
Example: African Purple Swamphen (in my photo gallery)
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,

La végétation cadre bien le papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Silène. L'image est claire et précise. La lumière met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

It is nature that it mixes with its background, well exposed and composed beautiful click.

I think cluttered background takes the attention away from the butterfly. All the same, details on the subject are quite good.

Excellente photo. Ces papillons sont souvent au sol et pas sur une jolie fleur :-)
