Hello Nikos,
nicely clear and well detailed close-up of Pontia edusa in a rather unusual looking combination of colours - the nicely soft distant background probably being the colour of dry - or very colourful - vegetation.
Composition might further profit from a decent bit of cropping at the left (in my opinion).
Thank you! With best regards,

hallo Nikos
so good composition with beautiful colours and good details
thanks gr lou

Hello Nikos,
A gorgeous butterfly captured against a lovely orangish BG which enhances it's beautiful wing markings. Focus is sharp and exposure is just right. I do agree that a little tighter crop on the left may be a better choice, but overall an eye catching image and very impressive.
