[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
What do you call that "tongue" of the butterfly? It's so fast in winding and unwinding it when it sip the nectar of a flower. Luckily, I caught it in the middle of unwinding. Notice the motion blurr of the spiral even at 1/200 secs. shutter speed.

Hi Rey,
I am not sure about the correct name, however, the image is superb. I love the colours and the contrast between the yellow and blue.
Very nice macro!

Perfect macro. Great colours and awesome detail. Perfect POF.

Well done

The tounge is called as "probosis",A good shot with a beautiful perspective, but i feel the picture is overexposed a bit and a little PP is required.

Fantastic close up Rey.
Brilliant colours fit me first then the detail takes over. Great composition, regards

Fantastic! Congratulations on this great capture. Very good play of colors. I like it.
Excellent work Rey. Regards, Krzysztof.

This is a masterpiece of an image, Rey.
The way you have captured the spiral leaves one tongue-tied.
A rare creation for which you deserve all the credit.
