@badala: butterflyies will be always my favorites too, obrigado
Fantastic, it looks massive. You did pretty well to get this at 38mm, you must have been really close to the subject.

Wow, what a rare and wonderful capture! Nice vibrant colors and shape! He/she somehow looks like a fabric butterfly, don't you think? :)

@Lyndsey Le: oh, what is a fabric one? please let me know.

Astounding shot, Dimitrios, not only of the insect but of the pillars.

@Anne: a smiling face is the best reward for a photographer, thank you
Dimitrios, I meant to say he looks like he's made out of fabric material. I don't think there's such thing as a "fabric" butterfly :) Sorry about the confusion. BTW, how big is the butterfly? He looks huge!

@Lyndsey Le: hi LL, thanks for expalining the term, the beauty was only abou 8-9 cm in length, I was very fortunate that it did not moove, I put the camera on macro mode and cliked. Best regards D
