Hi Caroline,
great POV and details, the colours are very eye catching in this shot. I like the reflected light on the underside of the wing too.

Cool shot - what is he sitting on? Gorgeous colors, too! Kudos! Cheers, Klaus

This green eyed monster is very evocative of someone I know really really well...
GREAT macro

Excelente enfoque y composición Caroline. Buena profundidad.
Un saludo: J. Ignasi Tejedor

hi caro,
yes, somehow original viewpoint and focusing.
scary details.the high contrast and bright colours give the shot a strange ambiance...
merci - carole

salut caroline
une macro qui nous montre la face du papillon avec une super netteté, la lumière aide beaucoup, bien vu

Hi Carolin,
Spectacular POV,I like too the details and metalic colours.



Hi Caroline,
Wonderful colorful macro image with lovely details and great low point of view.
I'm glad you did let the pancackes for what they were for a moment and took this shot instead :)
Excellent depth of field and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing.
Kindest regards,

Each one I view has a totally different perspective on a particular butterfly. This one titled green hits me with his perch of red-orange, as though I have been tossed back into the 1960's...very retro and MOD! I like the colors and perspective..very well done!


hi caroline,
lovely mavro shot of the butterfly, sharp image with good details, lovely colours,nice pov, well composed shot,
tfs & regards

Hello Caroline,

I like the point of view and the fine portrait qualities in this capture...

salut Caroline,

Beau gros plan de cette tête inquiètante, belle composition et bonnes couleurs

bonjour caroline
la pose d'une seconde etait risquée même avec un pied mais cela est reussi,la neteté est bonne sur la tête,en revanche la profondeur de champ est encore un peu juste malgré le reglage a f/10.

Very fun image! He looks like he's sitting on a brush with orange bristles. Original POV! Well done.

Hi Caroline

Great POV! Beautiful details, that eye is great. Nice colours and good DOF as well



Salut Caroline
C'est une belle macro d'un papillon commun. La lumière est diffuse et permet d'avoir des couleurs naturelles. Bon POV et jolie composition.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hello Caroline

A very interesting POV and DOF.The focus is sharp and you have very good sharpness of detail.I like the interesting composition.The colours are well saturated.TFS


ouah!!!! que de détails!! belle présentation, couleurs superbes et nettes,bon détails, bravo et merci a toi du partage

Hello Caroline,

This is a great portrait of a butterfly. I don't see this very often!
The diagonal composition is very dynamic and well balanced. I like the way you gave the butterfly plenty of space to look into. The details in the face of the insect look excellent. The warm colors contrast very well and the well controlled exposure preserved the details in both shadows and highlights. I've heard good things about this lens! Great job! Thanks!

With Friendly Regards,

  • Great

Hi Caroline.
I like your POV and amazing reflection of the lovely eyes of the butterfly. Great sharpness and details of the head and nearest part of the body, excellent colours of the shot and very good exposure parameters. Nice work with macro lens. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Caroline !
I like this unusual POV, makes the butterfly look completely different. Nice sharp details, I can see each little hair on his body. Also an excellent composition and a nice pose from the butterfly, with open wings. Very well done !

Bonjour Caroline, j'ai bien du mal a croire que j'ai raté cette photo, et pourtant !!!!
Elle est magnifique, impressionante en netteté et en couleur, la composition est admirable et le point de vue idéeal,
