Beautifull shot! Very colorfull and sunny, with excellent composition and poses of Butterflies. Flower looks great too. Probably most beautifull insects of autumn.

Hello Jan,

It's a nice composition with great colors.
Good POV and soft neatness very pleasant.



Hi Jan
Oh yes! It is a beauty. Great saturated colors, beautiful light. Perfect OOF buckground. Sharpness on both butterflies is good (even all the antennas are sharp)
Very good job
Best wishes

Hi Jan,
Splendid shot of this beautiful pair with such lovely colours and sharp details. I like the way they look to either side perched on those charming pink flowers. Superb lighting and a great BG. Excellent POV to portray them and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Jan,
Wonderful that you have to Red Admiral in one picture. Both are in sharp focus and well exposed. Nice blurred background that makes these two Red Admiral butterflies stand out.
