HI Marie
Very nice sharp image of this beautiful (and rare in Poland) butterfly. Good composition with butterfly in a right up corner, nice OOF but little noisy background and good field guide POV

Bonjour Marie-Christine,
A le regarder de près, ce papillon est magnifique avec ses différents bruns et ocres. Excellente netteté( juste sur les ailes) et un beau décor de feuilles pour l'arrière-plan. Je n'ai encore jamais eu le plaisir de voir ce papillon. Alors, un grand merci
Bonne journée à toi


Your composition, POV, DOF, OOF BG, Lighting, clarity of the image, sharpness of the subject and detail are all very well done in this pic.

Very nice composition and colours. Perhaps a smaller aperture might have produced a sharper focus on the wingtips as well as the excellent body details. Thanks.
