Hello Roberto,
Excellent clarity and razor sharp details as usual. The Nikon Dx camera works better than the Fx camera on macro images. Very nice photo with amazing clarity.
Marius.

Hi Roberto!
Superb shot in splendid colors and great sharpness. It would have been a perfect shot if the upper left wing was in perfect focus like the other. Still, it is an excellent composition with a lovely BG. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,
AKBAR
