Lovely colors and detail, Danilo. Yes, this is a Monarch.
Hope you are warm and well during this blizzard! We went out this morning and sleded (is that a word?) but then retreated to the solace of the fireplace and a good storybook with the kids.

This is very sharp! I can't get close enough to the butterflies here...maybe it's just me??? I'm scary looking.
I'm not a good guesser, but I'm guessing that you didn't take this today? :))) I hope you have a snow blower.

Vivid Monarch with vivid colored flowers, Danilo! A very suitable contribution to Friday's theme!
Superb macro capture from monarch butterfly with great sharpness and very well chosen POV. I like the perfect DOF in this shot, giving great details of the butterfly and lovely flowers. Very well done!

A beautiful butterfly for such a snowy day. Is it ever going to stop? Our local news is saying that this has the potential for being the biggest storm on record. But I digress. Your photo makes a nice contribution to the theme. There is a bit of softness on the wings and as you mentioned this could be related to shutter speed. It's possible that some may be DOF as well because of the focal length and distance to subject.
Stay warm and get a good night's rest, there's a lot of shovelling to do tomorrow! :))

I have only ever seen these beautiful butterflies in butterfly houses. What splendid colours and patterns they posses!
This was a very well composed shot, especially since it needed no cropping. The focus on the head is sharp and detailed; the slight blur on the wings is very common with butterfly shots and, I don't feel that it spoils the shot ... it is just motion blur! Your large aperture setting has given a fine f/g image and produced a good, blurred b/g with no detractions.
Have a lovely Christmas,
