I took this shot of a Queen butterfly while visiting my daughter in Nicaragua. The day was very windy with intermittent cloud cover as well as full sunlight.

The Queen reminds me so much of the Monarch, which is very common in my home state of Ohio. The caterpillars even feed on the same type of plants, the milkweed. Feeding on milkweed makes the caterpillars as well as the butterfly, very distasteful to predators.

很棒

Hello Ron,
Beautiful and perfect BG for butterfly. Well captured this Queen. Well exposure although light was harsh; evident on flower and leaves. Composition is also eye catching. Sharpness which made WHITISH DIGITAL POWDER on its wing, to me looks bit high.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hi Ron,

What a striking portrait of the butterfly. Wonderfully sharp composition and well saturated colors.

Thanks for sharing.

Satirtha

Hi Ron,
Fantastic shot, not only the composition, but the lights are enchanting also. Color palette and contrast are awesome as well, such as sharpness (I don't find it too hard). Absolutely a photo to be proud of. Bravo.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Ron,in effect this butterfly reminds a lot a monarch,but it's a bit different and absolutely beautiful! A perfect POV and very bright colors,for me a bit oversharpened in PP. Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ron,

The butterfly is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing with precision the details of the Queen butterfly. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.
