[Normas para las notas] Notas del fotógrafo
The annual migration of monarch butterflies to Mexico is in full swing now. This year, there are more of them because right weather conditions produced a good crop of their host plant, the milkweed. They lay eggs on it and their larvae eat it. For most other insects the milkweed is poisonous.

Hallo Daniel,
nice picture to demonstrate the beauty of this butterfly. The sun light coming in from left is suitable to underline structures on the wing surface of plexippus which is often shown as very even. The smooth background gives a nice contrast. Well composed, too.
Best wishes, Peter

Great shot really colorfull and detailed.
Well done and TSF

Hi Daniel

Superb shot of this very beautiful butterfly!
I love the POV, showing all the splendor of its wing, the great flower it is feeding from and an excellent blurry and pale BG. Very well done!
Also very nice are the framing, light and composition.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Daniel,
I think this is a beautiful composition with this nice Monarch. I ike this POV, DOF, colors and details and this great BG. TFS,

Hi Daniel,
Excellent close-up of plexipus with fine BG, sharpness and color. I might have cropped it differently but that's a minor aspect.
Points later!
TFS, regards, Ivan
