[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this wonderful butterfly on my terrace, it is not really usual to find such a big species in Rome, believe me, especially on my terrace..
So, surprised (and pleased) for that nice visit I took some shots (she remains about 3 min. on my flowers), so I had to run and take camera, change cartridge cause it was full (!!!) and then, this is the result. Hope she will come back to visit me.

PS Somebody knows her name??? I'm curious

Very nice picture...she will surely comeback to your terrace and hopefully bring friends too, so that we can see more butterfly pictures from you :) Congratulations !!!

Hi Ilfumo
Very nice capture of a butterfly. The sharp details of a butterfly is great. Beautiful colors and lighting.

Very nicely done, beautiful butterfly with sharp details and beautiful colours

Hello Ilfumo,

This is a neat closeup capture from a lovely butterfly enjoying perching on Lantana flowers!

The focus is spot-on and sharpness is amazing. The colors are natural and very well shown, which make this work so eye-catching. The POV and DOF are well maintained too. Great work!

Have a nice Sunday.
