Hey Heinz,

Another great shot. I love these things. I've never seen one but your picture is great. Excellent DOF and sharpness. The colors are great. The pink flower does a lot for the image. Well done

Amazing creature! Beautiful composition and unusual subject. I have never seen that before. I wonder what function the wings serve, being clear. Perhaps that helps with camouflage. Very interesting.

Wooow Henz!
This butterfly is just FANTASTIC!
Amazing subject and great pose!

Fantastic shot of that glass wing butterfly. They are so hard to get right. Sharp details and great light and composition. Well done and TFS. : )

Heinz, this is a great subject and I would like to have it in my sights. The DOF is very shallow yet I am uncertain as too how much light you had available to play around with the aperture settings. Try and use a smaller F-stop like F5.6 or F8 to help you get it all in focus.

Hello,
this is an beautiful picture,wonderful colours. Good job.

A spectacular capture of this glass wing butterfly, Heinz!

I never knew of these before, and am in awe of the delicate beauty those transparent wings create.

Great composition, details, lighting, colors, and BG.

Well done, and thank you.

Good shot Heinz!
Perfect POV and composition, good details and light. However I think the colours could've been a bit more vivid.
Anyway, it's very interesting post and I like it very much.
