Hi Bev,thanks for identify my last butterfly first. And next my best compliments for this beautiful pararge.Your way to show the beauties of nature is always great,another first class pic postprocessed in a fantastic way.Excellents details ,colors and POV,thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano
A fine capture of a Speckled Wood, the S. European nominate race. The British and N. European race has pale yellow where this has orange patches. The sharpness is fine, even though the DOF is limited and the inner frame is a nice touch but perhaps I might have had it a little further from the butterfly's wing, otherwise this a pleasing composition.
TFS this beauty and have a good weekend,

TFS this my friend!

You have taken the photo in a very good light. It was warm and matched so well with the color tones of butterfly's wings. A pleasent contrast is made with the diasies and beeing palced on both sides of the butterfly makes a good composition. I am not a fan of frames but this is a personal matter of taste without dirrect conection to the quality of the image.
Thank you for sharing,

I am stunned by this capture - the colors, contrast, clarity, and subject matter - all are so beautiful. I can see a story here - and they do say a photo is worth a thousand words!
I see plot, caring, a beginning, a thread, and in the distance, chapters or stages of life...breath-taking.

Hello Beverly !
I have seen these butterflies very often in the forest, but they are so shy, and I never got any correct picture - you were much better than me, this is an excellent capture, I love the composition, the natural colors, the pose of the butterfly, and the POV. The flowers are lovely, making the picture happy and cheerful. Very well done !
