Hi Tobias.
Perfect composed picture of the wonderful butterfly at very cute scenery. Excellent colours palette and dark key execution of the picture. Exposure is very good. Only image o the butterfly is soft a little bit. May be it is effect of use 250 mm end of lens. In any case, well done and best regards.

Hello Tobias,
This is a colorful butterfly. Very nice exposure. Great composition. The focus may be a bit soft. TFS this fine image.

Hi Tobias,
Hast du gut gemacht! Sieht sehr naturlich aus und der korper ist gut im focus, man sieht alle haren. Gute diagonal presentation. Unglaublich dass es schon Schmetterlinge gibt.

Ciao Tobias,
la tua foto mostra un esemplare svernante di Aglais urticae (Small Tortoiseshell).

Hi Tobias,
A colorful presentation!
Very good your POV to show us the beauty colors and patterns on this butterfly.
I like the way it looks the blurred background and the inclusion of the red flower on it.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Toba,
Nice capture of this Small Tortoiseshell that has come out from hibernation. The POV, focusing and composition are excellent, even though it is a little too soft.
Nice sign of spring and thanks for sharing it!
Regards, Ivan
