Hi Luciano,

Wishing you a Happy New Year!
As always, you have captured the butterfly in all its glory. It's a beautiful specimen and you have brought out the details superbly.

TFS this lovely image.
Warm wishes,

Bonjour Luciano,

Le papillon est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Calitto Noir. La bonne luminosité rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.


Ciao Luciano, altra favolosa bellezza esotica, favolosi colori, splendida nitidezza e ottimi dettagli, bravissimo,ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
Another beauty. Fantastic sharpness, details and very beautiful contrasting natural colours. Taken from the best POV.

Hi Luciano,
Simple yet very effective composition, with your trademark, the exceptional light management. Great sharpness on the butterfly as well. Background's a little noisy, but that's not a major problem. Goo shot!
Kind regards (and thanks very much for your warm comment on my gull photo), László

Hello Luciano,
Beautiful 🦋. Well captured, although bit more ground level shot could helped you to get OOF BG. Details and spots are well visible.
Thanks for sharing your work with us 😊

Just great! Congratulation Luciano.
Preciosa, I like it a lot.

Ciao Luciano,
a perfectly clear and cheerfully colourful close-up presentation of this cute little butterfly probably living most of its life in the shadow of forests.
I like it. Thank you! With best regards,
