bom dia Silvio.
Você sem qualquer dúvida é um dos grandes deste sítio e quando se trata de borboletas ninguém captura melhor do que você. Grande variedade e beleza.
Minhas homenagens,

Silvio,

Good focus on butter fly and flower. Good lighting and DOF.
Head/Eyes part is kind of mixing with background color. Could be because you might have used 'auto focus' which set perfect focus on the flower and pollen? Using manual focus with focus ring might have helped, which might not be an option always especially with birds, butterflies and other insects...

-Mihir.

Hi Silvio,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the détails and colors of the Melitaea didyma butterfly. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
