What a delicate creature, so well shown. I love how you can see through it's wings, and see every little detail, the blurry background is nice also, well done.

Toll, ich habe noch nie solch einen Schmetterling gesehen. - Aus was für einem "Material" er wohl ist?
Das ist ein gigantisches Bild - suuuuper.
Mir gefällt es besonders gut, dass man den Hintergrund so klar durch die Flügel sehen kann.
Klasse und vielen Dank

Martina, once I tried to shoot one of them, but I couldn't.

Very nice picture of this very beautiful butterfly. I like composition and pov a lot.

Maybe, on the background, you could have used the Blur Tool in order to get rid of some little noise.

Hello Martina,

This is such a lovely picture of this beautiful butterfly with it's see-through wings. Composition is perfect. Focus could have been a little bit sharper and the BG is a little bit grainy. PO is very good. All in all this is a very nice picture. Well done & TFS!

Fragile and beautifull. Its wings look amazing. Great work Martina!

Hello Martina,
Nice picture of this amazing transparent butterfly ! the exposure is good, while not perfect because of the overexposed area on the top left corner. But this is still a good macro



Bonjour Greta
Belle photo. Mais il lui a manqué un coup de flash et un diaphragme bien plus fermé. Cela t'aurait fait gagner en netteté et luminosité.

I like the transparancy of the wings. It looks very vulnarable.
Great shot of this special butterfly.

I first saw these wonderful butterflies on TN last year and I fell for them. They are so unique, and so dainty. Excellent capture Martina, so sharp and clear. Very well done, thank you, and the colours are good too.
