Hello Heinz,
Very nice capture of this beautiful butterfly. in lovely pastel colours. Very sharp against the background and an excellent composition.
TFS, Ulla

Hallo Heinz,
delikateste Farben, elegante, schwungvolle Komposition mit dem perfekt posierenden Falter auf dem Blatt.
Sehr schönes Falterportrait!
Nach zwei tropisch heißen Wochen in Indien soeben heimgekehrt ins regenkalte, stürmische Wien - mit Dank und besten Grüßen

You are beyond compare as a photographer of butterflies, Herr Koloska!
A few minor nips and bites at the edges of its wings (inflicted by some predator, I presume) notwithstanding, this image of a butterfly is decidedly one of the best ever posted on TN.
Thank you very much for sharing this stunningly beautiful picture.

Hi Heinz,
Good sharpness. Wings are together. Butterfly is depicted well.

Perfect picture of a less than perfect butterfly - showing how fragile these creatures are. The color scheme is lovely, the DOF perfect and the composition beautiful. Thank you for sharing!

bonjour heinz
encore une excellente photo,le papillon deja a lui tout seul rend ce cliché tres beau par ses formes et couleurs,mais votre travail vient l'enbellir pas le point de vue et la profondeur de champ ainsi que l'encadrement.bravo.

Hello Heinz!

TFS!

Hallo Heinz,
diese Schönheit hat sich aber auch extra dekorativ für Dich postiert - so schwebend auf dem Blatt - sieht toll aus.
Vielen Dank, ich wünsch' Dir einen schönen Sonntag

Hallo Heinz,
Trotz der verbuehenden Schoenheit ist die Aufnahme einfach super. Diese natuerlichen Farben, perfekte Freistellung, Schaerfe und toller Bildaufbau das ist einfach eine perfekte Aufnahme, die mich mal wieder staunen laesst.

Nice compo my friend with excellent sharpness and colors.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF (adjusted but with the entirety of the insect and the leaf in focus), focus, sharpness, color, lighting, background, framing.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing to argue.

Very good post, thank you and regards.

Hi Heinz

What a fantastic shot, superb composition and a wonderful pose, this Butterfly really is stunning with beautiful markings, nice sharp deatils and beautiful colours, I like the way the B/Fly is isolated from the BG.

Hallo Heinz,
ich habe in den letzten Tagen TrekNature nur sporadisch besucht. Inzwischen hast du still und leise dein 300stes Bild von diesem farblich schönen aber nicht mehr so ganz intaktem stelenes eingestellt. In freier Wildbahn muss man auch Glück haben, ein wirklich 'fransenreines' Tier zu erwischen. Trotz der Makel bringst die die Schönheit des Falters klar ans Licht. Die Grün- und Brauntöne sind ganz natürlich. Könnte in Costa Rica sein!
Schöne Grüße, Peter

da hat sich aber einer extra für dein 300. posiert, heinz! :-)
was für ein hübscher und schon etwas "angeknabberter" schmetterling.
du hast deine neue camera ja schon perfekt im griff -
exzellente schärfe und schöne kräftige farben.
perfekt erwischt & alles gute, thorsten.
