Hi Taz, doesn't her 'eye' stand out on the wing? She looks so pretty there on the lavender, nice and sharp too. Well done. TFS.

Very GOOD!
Perfect shot of this specie!
Very good BG!
Beautiful colors!
Perfect details!
Just a litle correction: M. jurtina doesn't belong to the Nymphalidae, but Satyridae family.
Also common in Portugal.

Hello Christian!
The photo is beautiful, has lovely colours and great details. Framing perfect too.
I like it very much.

Beautifull image again Christian. Well chosen angle on the butterfly and great sharpness, colours and DOF. Amazing work!

Hello Christian,
this was not easy, they are not sitting still for a long time at these small blossoms. So you made a wonderful job, the sharpness is very good, also the colours and it's a beautiful arrangement, thanks

Bravo pour la netteté et la composition.

Félicitations et merci Christian!

Très joli papillion !

Comme je peux voir Christian, ce ne sont pas les travaux de constructions qui t'empêchent de t'éclater en photo. Exposiiton excellente sur l'insecte. Le papillon ressort très bien sur le fond pastel et flou.
Très bon travail.

Stunning detail on a lovely photo!!
Very well composed....

Hi Christian!

Very, very nice capture. Fragile butterfly, very well composed with flower. Good colours and composition, interesting note. Great for winter time!

Hi Taz,
Very pretty butterfly. The details are very clear and I like the "eye" on its wing. I also like the crisp detail in the lavender. The colours are so beautiful. Well done!
