Een prachtige foto en een mooi eerbetoon aan Jaap, de macro grootmeester. I just wish we saw more posts from Jaap.
Your photo is beautiful. Details are sharp and colors are great. I really like the POV and the composition in your picture. I also like the yellowish border a lot. Good BG too but on my new monitor (have a flatpannel for the first time in my life) it looks a wee bit grainy. Nothing serious though. Well done & TFS! Lekker Aand!

Its great to see a posting from you and a butterfly too!
I chased them around for hours today,no luck this time but I suppose the exercise is good for me!
Excellent composition,colours and a great background.
Very good detail considering the distance from which it was taken.
Keep 'em coming!

Very nicely captured callie, a different way of getting them into the camera with the long lens, instead of sneaking up as close as possible. should make it possible to get some of the more nervious ones on film. TFS

I like the colors and the soft focus. Does look a bit weathered does it not. End of its days, I suppose. I noticed how the photo's from other parts of the world are interpreting spring and the arrival of summer, whilst we are now getting into weathered weather.

Nice shot but not up to your usual standard. It looks noisey and soft on focus.... or is it my eyes? Nice subject all the same with an interesting note. Thanks.

I like golden-soft mood of your photo. Fantastic light and colours. Composition and pose also great but first of all this is like painting. TFS!
BTW - where's Jaap?

Callie, not your best shot, is it? Looks too soft and noisy for my liking, sorry.

NIce picture Callie.
Not your usual standard when it comes to sharpness.
Well composed, good colours and as usual a excellent note.

Ask same as Greg, where's Jaap?

Hi Callie, how nice to see you on board.
I can see that this is not a macro, but almost a long distance shot. I wish I could zoom like this, although this time, I guess the lens did no offer the best sharpness. As always an excellent note. Regards, Felipe.

Jaap is nu met vakantie, maar zal zeer tevreden zijn met deze vlinder, niet uw aller grootste foto, misschien iets minder scherp dan gewoonlijk, maar zeker nog mooi om naar te kijken.
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

Wonderful shot.Lighting,details and composition are excellent.Thanks for sharing.
Hi Callie, I thought this was an Eastern Pale Clouded Yellow. (Colias erate) I did have trouble to ID mine where did you get the ID?
Its a very pleasing composition. The light looks "just right". Not easy to do with these 400mm and handheld. Well done.
