This Dryas iulia settled on this piece of driftwood and probed it for several minutes. A taste for salt?

Hello Sir...
What a beautiful pic of this
Butterfly ...
You capture it with great
sharpness and you very well focused on your subject..Details are also good ..
Nice POV ..
Thanks for sharing ....

Nice background on a beautiful butterfly. Like

hello Karin,
interesting choice of angle :)
the partly blurry BG gives us the hint of natural scenario, and at the same time, is not affecting the sharpness of the subject much. good. framing-wise, a change was needed. but that's my opinion. you have captured a lovely species.. beautiful.
have a nice day

Beautiful composition. Great ocean background, the horizon is nice and straight. Gorgeous color contrast.
