Hello Luciano,
A great shot of this beautiful Oriental Meadow Brown. The entire frame is filled with gorgeous colors and super fine detail. The white flower petals may be a little hot, but the butterfly is perfectly exposed. Well done!!

PS. I think this may be the same species.

Very colourful composition with the butterfly, Luciano.
Somehow reminds me of some country's flag. :)
Very sharp and crisp image.

Hello Luciano,
Thanks for visiting my gallery. I just return a few moments ago from my short trip to Danube Delta.....I will post some interesting scenes.....
I can not describe in words what nature can show.....a fantastic bird world on water.....
Lovely butterfly specie with nice colors.

Ciao Luciano, la prima volta che l'ho fotografata l'avevo presa per una Maniola, le somiglia una cifra, gran bella macro di una farfalla abbastanza rara, dettagli strepitosi, splendida nitidezza e magnifici colori naturali, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hi Luciano,
Beautiful composition and color palette, perfect sharpness on the wings. Eventhough the white petals became a touch overexposed (at least on my screen), your unique flash usage technique makes the photo an unforgettable one. Bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Luciano,

This is a great photo with gorgeous colors and super details of the butterfly. The white petals are a bit overexposed; maybe a slight correction would have made it perfect.

Thanks for sharing.

Warm Regards,

Hello Luciano,
Congratulation for capturing this beautiful butterfly first time. Very good details and DOF on butterfly. But POV doesn't look very attractive to me. White OE too. Use full zoom and try to get less distracting BG. Here you tried yo capture it as close as you can. In such way you will get good details but not good BG.
Thanks for sharing,

Bonjour Luciano,

La fleur aide au cadrage de l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Louvet. La lumièere fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.
