Hi Peter,
Beautiful portrait. Excellent composition, and everything else (sharpness, details etc.) is great here as well. Effective photo, beside the above I also love the water droplets, especially that one which is just falling into the water and leaves a miniature, temporary crater on the water surface... Perfect shot, congratulations!
Kind regards, László
PS: a little further to the west, in Ireland, this species is much less common. I've never seen any here, although I do much more birdwatching than I did at home in Hungary (where this species is frequent, nevertheless).

Hi Luciano,
Probably the smallest species, but you managed to capture the butterfly very well, with open-wing position. Sharpness and DoF are both great, and I also like the off-centered composition a lot. Excellent photo, congratulations!

Hi Sri,
Excellent capture, great eye contact with the "model" who's framed, at least from above, by the mesmerizing sunrise lights. A real African wildlife photo, wonderful!

Hi Silvio,
A little bit overexposured, but spectacular photo of a rare species. Nice DoF, and one of the rare occasions when the busy background isn't disturbing. Good shot.

Hi Sri,
Those few lightrays helped you making the photo fabulous - exceptional use of lights and shadows. The bird's pose is very spectacular, or I'd use the word funny as they tried to find the balance. Lovely composition and crop as well, nice image overall. Congratulations!

Hi Peter,
Excellent shot, as high quality one as Marius' photos about the same bird. Absolute perfect composition, good sharpness, and the background color is the most possibly suitable to the bird's vibrant ones on the plumage at all. Lovely light management and white balance. The photo of the day for me.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Asbed,
Congratulations for your new camera / lens - and of course to you for shooting this beautiful photo! Perfect sharpness, timing and composition. I don't know if a 135 mm lens is the ideal for bird photography, but this image became lovely. And the title is good as well. Thanks for sharing.

Ciao Silvio,
A little bit worn wings from the butterfly's side - from the photographer's one perfect composition, exposure, sharpness, plus really mysterious atmosphere created by perfectly blurring the background and using fantastic lights to colorize the image. Again a stunner! Wonderful!

Hi Silvio,
Although the main subject is the little butterfly, what you captured perfectly, the flower with its vibrant blue is as much interesting - if not even more! Fabulous composition, exposure and colors. Bravo!

Hi Marius,
Breathtaking in-flight shot with perfect timing and composition. I also managed to photograph this species above the Lee river in Cork, but after looking at your image I decide to never post mine. Masterwork! Bravo!

Hi Peter,
Surprisingly good photo from a smartphone camera. No overexposure at all, and eventhough the closer (right) wing is out of focus, there are beautiful details on the left one.
Please, if you can, come more often to TN. We miss you and your photos.
Kind regards from the Hiberno-Ungarisch, László

Hi Lou,
I hope once I manage to find this species as well, as I always missed the rendez-vous yet. I'd have chosen vertical composition for this photo, however, a great addition to my theme "Ascomycetes 2." Thanks!

Hi Luciano,
A little bit worn specimen, although it's not the photographer's fault, of course. Nice shot. Might be a little darker / slightly more underexposured IMHO, however, the whole image looks like the sharp butterfly's resting on a flat glass, and all the greenery are below the glass sheet. Nice dedication to Peter, whose work inspire all of us. Great photo, congratulations!

Hi Ram,
Beautiful piece of nature photography, nice eye contact / facial expression, interessting pose. I also like the great sharpness, perfect details on the plumage. Exposure is also good, and the contrast between the yellow beak and the dark feathers is fabulous. Congratulations, excellent photo!

Hi Luciano,
Although this time flash washed the colors of the butterfly out a bit, everything else is more than acceptable on the photo. Composition's lovely and sharpness is great (except for the left wing a bit), DOF is perfect and the POV is spectacular. Good work!
