What an incredible shot! The DOF is excellent and you know, I have never heard of a European peacock caterpillar. Given the wings, the way they appear to flair out, I understand the name.
The contrast between the butterfly and its natural surroundings is lovely - dark against the light...
The clarity is awesome, and the butterfly is obviously fragile, yet I still want to softly touch it...
Thank you for posting.

This side of the wings of this otherwise beautiful butterfly is a potent weapon for camouflage, Luciano, and you have captured the details on it very well.
Good composition as a whole.
Cheers and bye.

Hi Luciano , very nice capture of this dark beauty , great detail ,color , contrast , point of view, and composition . thanks for sharing
you show the different nuances of the dark underside wing pattern of io very well.
Precisely focused and sharp butterfly which stands out clearly against the background
so that the wing shape is nicely seen.
Best wishes, Peter

Ciao Luciano, insolita vista laterale della bella Inachis, anche se qualcheduno l'aveva già postata un paio di settimane fa, ottimi deagli e buona nitidezza, dilato non è certo bella come dall'alto ma è un ottimo esempio di mimetismo, sembra avere due pezzi di corteccia al posto delle ali, ciao e buona Domenica

Bellissima Luciano. Questa volta giallo sparato ma bilanciato con maestria dal colore cupo delle ali che si, sembrano proprio la sezione di un tronco.

Excellent capture of the underside of the Peacock, all very sharply in focus. Great details and fine light making the pattern look like tapestry! A good contrasting background too. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Bien captadas las texturas y colores a pesar de la dificultad de la toma.
