[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After my scary shot of yesterday (I want to say thanks for your critics) we want to "cool down" and have a relaxing look at this Blue Common (Polyommatus icarus).
This species I like so much, it's so tiny (wingspan about 30 mm) but so pretty.

Have a nice week.

Wow ! You have nicely captured this Common Blue. The butterfly and the flower are SUPERB ! Thanks for this best quality shot, who did it, Sabine or Stephan ?

have a nice week Sabine,
nice to see this, very nice photo from my favourite butterfly. Good pov, with a fantastic dof, the only thing what can be done better is the composition, but that is just a point of turning the butterfly for a cm of 4. Fun,
nice job Sabine.
gr. Jaap

lovely colours and lighting in this picture. the detail is fantastic. well done.

Hallo Sabine, sehr schönes Foto des kleinen Ikarus. Farblich super, Tiefenschärfe einwandfrei, Hintergrund hebt sich gut vom Motiv ab und ein sehr schöner Bildaufbau. Danke für das schöne Foto. Ich wünsche Euch eine schöne Woche. Heinz

These colours are very striking and rich Sabine! The composition with the tilted angle is very well chosen also. Needless to say; exposure, sharpness and the creamy background bokeh are super as well. (P.S. On the green leaf on the left side I see some dust parts that shine through a bit as you have used a small aperture. Perhaps a little healing brush on those spots?)
Best regards and have a wonderfull week, Mike

Hi Wishnu.
What a fantastic photo you got here with this beautifull butterfly. The colours are really great, and the DOF too. The background seems to emphasize the object of your shot. Well done.

A work of art, Sabine! Wonderful depth of field and clarity of detail. The blue at the bottom of the butterfly is interesting with a juxtaposition against the purple and gold of the flower. If you chose that purposely, congratulations on great execution. And even if you did not, it was certainly serendipitous. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Wishnu

Very nice shot. Well composed, good sharpness and detail. Nice work. TFS.

Hi Sabine,

Excellent shot and well done on the composition. This is a beauty, vibrant colors and the background compliments your subject. Excellent work.


with such a rich violet, and strong bokeh, this comes out like a poem. The flash worked unconspicuously.
Very inspiring.

and this is really, really relaxing one. is he sucking the honey or the color? :)great.
