My experience, shooting from this angle is very sensitive many times my shadow made here fly so in such case I prefer opposite light, it is well focused and framed.

hallo Pedro

Hola Pedro
Una bella mariposa y se nota por su constitución que debe de ser muy grande tal y como indicas en la nota que la acompaña.
Muchas gracias por compartirla y enhorabuena por ella.
Un cordial saludo.

Ciao Pedro, great macro of fantastic butterfly, I never see before, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Pedro,
Beautiful minimalistic image - the butterfly and nothing else... Very effective as there aren't any distracting elements in the background, while the whole insect is tack sharp. Great exposure and noise control as well. Masterful simplicity, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
