Que hermosa posicion en la que capturaste a esta mariposa !.. aunque esta un poquito desenfocada a mi parecer... en fin, me gusto !


A great POV of this unusual butterfly with beautiful markings and colors. Sharp details and good exposure on this one. Well done, Ricardo, and TFS. : )

Hi again :)
Pretty Adeplha :)
TFS :-)

great compo with "V" shapes and nice colour harmony...

This is not an Adelpha. It is in the genus Doxocopa in the subfamily Apaturinae.
