The same situation of the Butterfley...
only that this was photographed at the forest of Avaré.
I had never seen this type besides her to be 1/3 of the another is transparent! So much that I let the stalk of the plant that appears behind to appear, can see the stalk through the wing!
I liked this also!
Did you like?
Thank you!

Family: Nymphalidae
Genus: Ithomiinae
Latin name: Greta oto
Common name: The Glasswing

The colours are good but you have a little exposure problem on the butterfly body, it is too bright and this is an important part in the picture, another thing is the blured leaf in the front of the picture, it is not contributing nothing to the frame.
To prevent this exposure problem you should take light measiring from the body.

Bonita borboleta, eu já vi, realmente ela é muito pequena pouco maior que uma abelha (o corpo), tem as asas transparentes. Realmente (como diz o Elroyie) ficou um pouco "estourado" no corpo, mas não deixa de ser uma boa foto.

It could have been a great shot, but the colours are weird and the flash burned the fly.
Great pose and POV.

Show ta linda.
Parece de plastico a asa de tao brilhante.
Muito boa mesmo.

Boa macro, foto tb. As outras borboletas que Vc colocou estão melhores. Faltou um pouco mais de detalhes que nem sempre softs ajudam.

Muito bonita a borboleta, contraste, cores, composição e fundo ótimos. Gostei muito.

I love this barboleta!
I am an amateur musician.
Would it be possible to use this photo for CD art?
I call the project "Study of a Rare Brazilian Butterfly"
This photo would be perfect!

Please let me know...



gostei muito! Bonita macro toda colorida! Ainda estou esperando para tirar uma foto assim!
Thanks Ana:)
