You realy have a big stock of butterflies photos, Heinz!
Very good indeed!
I like the transparent wings of this beautiful specie!
Wonderful colors, as usual, on your photos!

Its a very nice composition and subject placement. The details are a bit soft though. Well done Heinz.

Hi Heinz,
It's a very nice close up of this beautiful butterfly.
Well composed, nice colours and good POV.
I can see some trace of the PP in the BG especially round the antennae , maybe you have cropped it little to much.
Well done.

Hallo Heinz,
heute ein wahrlich besonderes Schmuckstück von Mutter Natur das garantiert auch jeder auf dieser schönen Welt hübsch und interessant findet. Er hat die Flügel so genau aufeinander dass man meint, er hätte nur einen.
Vielen Dank, so toll!
Hab' ein schönes und erholsames Wochenende, tschüssi

A magnificent capture of one of my favorite butterflies, Heinz. Very sharp and clear. I can see the transparent membranes in the wing. Great POV. Congratulations and TFS. : )

Beautifull how the transparent wings are brought into attentio here with the background shining through. Great colours and contrast in the image as well. Very nice work!

Heinz, although I have the feeling that the quality of the image could be a little bit better, this is a nice shot.

I like pov and composition. Nice colors too.

To My friend in Germany,

Spectacular colours, but a bit soft and the busy high-contrast BG is not optimal to show off the transparent wings. In any case very pleasant to look at and a good pose and composition.
Regards,
Gabi

Hi Heinz,
Beautiful composition! The colors, detail, and DOF look great. Amazing creature!

Hi Heinz,
It's realy a wonderful this to share with.
Nice compo and POV. Great colours and details.
BG also would have been nice, if those excesive light didn't play the dirty work.
THanks for giving this away.....!!!

I would like to see it in nature someday. The wings always fascinated me.
Photo is nicely framed and has good quality.
It's a lovely dedication Heinz :)
