Extremely beautiful Tortoiseshell butterfly, Yves.
The shot is nicely composed.
The entire image entices me with its colourful outlook.

Hallo Yves,
Ze fladderen ook bij mij in de tuin rond de vlinderstruiken. Prachtige macro in erg mooie kleuren en uitstekende scherpte.

Ciao Yves, great macro of lovely butterfly on beautiful flower, fantastic bright colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Yves,
Aglais, not Anglais (title)... A very common b-fly species in Ireland as well. Pleasantly composed, colorful macro. Wings could be a tad sharper in my opinion, probably you lost some details during the re-sizing procedure, and you didn't re-sharp the TN-sized image. But the color tones are good, as well as the compo itself.
Kind regards, László
