Hey hey, that's crazy, again we are neighbours ;-) And again I can be proud to be next to you because your shot is so beautiful.
So close, we can see every detail, we almost can count the tiny hairs.
Thanks my friend, I love it.

Hello Sergio,

Your sharp focus and capture of details on this macro are unbelievable!! I don't think I have ever seen such accurate insect details to beat this!
You have done an excellent job composing the wings into the l/h side, whist the antennae are pointing to the t/r/h corner. The all-important eye is in the strong 'thirds' position in the frame. Well done!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Sergio,
An impressive close-up, perfectly sharp. I love the play of shapes and colors that make this look like a "leopard butterfly". In WS, an other version with less noise in the background.
Kind regards
