Another sharp image of the butterfly. Interesting detail on the wings of the butterfly. Looks like some script.

Hi Silvio, Awesome contrasts colours between the butterfly and the yellow flowers. I like the burry green BG and the sharp green FG. Super clarity and details. Splendid nights and colours. It is always great to share your pictures. Thank very much
Anna

The precision in your focus is even better when we see your very limited dof. The clarity and details are quite excellent especially the orange in the tips of the butterflys antena. The colours enhance the shot beautifully.
