Hello Horia,
Very nice presentation of this Painted Lady. The sand in the BG gives a special contrast to the beautiful colours of the butterfly. Excellent sharpness, details, POV and diagonal composition.

Hello Horia,
It must be one of the most widespread butterflies in the world but also one of the most beautiful species! This one looks gorgeous in the lovely sunlight showing it very sharply against the sand and the colours are very beautiful!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Asa se pare, ca aceasta specie se gaseste peste tot, frumoasa fotografie, numai bine,

De obicei fotografiai acesti fluturi pe flori sau plante dar uite ca poza ti-a iesit super si pe nisip.
Multe salutari.Alin.

Hi Horia

What a lovely pose this Painted Lady gave you and you made excellent use of the
opportunity. With the wings fully extended it "paints" a beautiful picture against the
BG, which looks more like a rock to me rather than sand. The details are pin sharp,
the colours are pleasing and very natural, and the composition is great with the insect
placed on the diagonal plane across the image.

Well done and TFS.

Buna Horia,

Stunning macro of this pretty lady from top POVproviding us all upperwing details.
TFS and have a nice day MF!
