Mestra amymone

Found this little beauty at the Edinburg Scenic Wetlands park in Edinburg, TX over the weekend. This was my first visit there. Great spot for butterflies if you are in the area.

Nikon D500 with Sigma 150 macro, f10, ISO400, 1/800.

Thanks in advance for any comments, criticism, suggestions, etc.

Nice! I’ve found it hard to get a good shot of the underside, you did great! Personally, I’d crop a bit from the top and right (since you asked.)
Good light,

Fine image of a lovely butterfly. Some year I'll make it down to Texas for all of the beautiful native species and the migrants that come up from Mexico.

A nice little image that would certainly be strengthened compositionally by removing the upper oof bloom(?) as already suggested

All the best
