This is a very beautiful portrait of this lovely butterfly!
I really like the side POV, showing all the beauty of its wings.
Also great colors, excellent lighting and very nice sharp details. Great framing and composition as well.

Bravo and TFS

Fantastic pose of this butterfly atop the leaves, Juan.

Good light and colors.
The details are very sharp.
