Beautiful image. Very interesting for me as I often visit Butterfly World here in South Florida which is purported to be the largest Butterfly exhibition in the United States, but never saw a butterfly like this one.

Well done.   Posted: 05/07/2021 20:24:41

A very interesting butterfly and like above I never saw a butterfly like this one and the depth of field allows me to see this creature very well done.   Posted: 05/08/2021 05:24:05

Good catch. I find the complementary colors, raking light that creates texture and highlights the butterful, and your composition create strong visual impact. I like the soft diffuse background which complements the butterfly. Well done.   Posted: 05/08/2021 09:03:11
