Hallo Marcello
WOW!!! What a sensational beauty of a butterfly, and colourful flower in one shot. A wonderful picture. It's so great in sharpness, lighting, depth of field and exposure. Everything is just stunning. A magnificent shot with a precious and soft on the eye composition. I fancy this one and appreciate you showing us this jewel. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
Just a little reminder, at my latest posting I still have a "I punti domani :)" from your side.

Joli détail, le papillon est sur une belle fleur.
Bonne journée.

Dear Marcello,
very impressing image, powerfully composed. Closely approached from a perfect point of view, you have achieved and extremely well detailed portrait of P. coridon, well complemented by the view of the male upperside in the link.
Thank you! My best regards,

Hello Peter,
Very good macro shot. Perfect colours, very good composition with the flower. I admire your DOF - it's also very good. TFS
