[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot I took inside a butterflies farm. its not wild but I like it anyway. I also didn't crop because the dark backround leaves place for imagination (doesn't it looks like inside a tropical forest?). well, that my thoughts anyway. the specie itself is quite common in south America and its flight is very beautifull.

Hi Oz,

an excellent capture with outstanding sharpness and colors,well done and TFS,


Hi Oz

A lovely shot. The fill flash has worked well and the dark BG emhances the shot nicely. Clarity and sharpness are spot on. TFS.

Hello Oz,
this is a very nice butterfly shot from a Heliconian. But I think this is a Tithorea harmonia.
Great sharpness, details and POV. Great lighting, very nice bg and great composition too. Thank you for posting.
