The San Diego Wild Animal Park each year exhibits butterflies and moths to the public in a created outdoor setting. Entering this setting, they fly freely and will even land on you. Many different species can be found here, all of which are very beautiful.

Beautiful colors and details and POV, Michael.
I have been to the San Diego Wild Animal Park many times,
but have never been there for the Buterfly Exhibit.
Sounds like a great opportunity to capture some beauties.
I like how the curved lines in the wings seem to be mirrored in the curved lines on the tree trunk.
Great composition. and POV.
TFS. : )

hi Michael!

nice captured moment, amazing colors!


The lines flow so well on this. The colour and focus is superb in my eye. This is one image that will really stand out amongst others. Very good capture.

Hi Michael. Great capture. I love the colour of the butterfly痴 wings and the texture of the wood.
Well done. Regards

Hello Michael!
What to write about this picture? This is very colourful photo with very good DOF (even if some parts of wings are not sharp :>), and well saturated colours. I also like the BD - it seems to be an old tree :)
TFS and best greetings,
