Hi Fatih,
Beautiful close up of this butterfly!
I like so much the clear and sharp details got on the insect.
The blue spots and the dark red of the wings are gorgeous.
Very good the POV and the DOF used to put away the soft background.
I think you made a nice composition with this picture.
Congratulations and thnaks for share it with us,
My best regards,

Ottimo close up, beu colori e dettaglio.

Hello Fatih,
you show a nice picture of antiopa, well-focused and in natural colours - the typical dark red-brown is particularly well presented.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Fatih,
Fine presentation of a freshly emerged Camberwell Beauty. This is well composed with fine colour and detail. Great to see a shot of this from so far east: it really confirms that this species is circumpolar, occuring in N. Europe, N. America ans N. Asia!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
