Hello Silvio,
This time we are neighbours. In the same time we are about computers. I see that you have flowers and butterflies on them, it's spring came. In my country we have more cold weather only grass is green a little.
Friendly regards, Pawel

Hallo Silvio
An absolute delightful viewing pleasure has unfolded in front of my eyes upon opening your image. What a lovely "picture". Details of both the flower and the butterfly is bright, sunny and well displayed. Everything is just "pretty", especially the blossoms. This is the ideal image for a little girl's room. I really like everything in this photograph but especially the cheerful mood, I sense looking at it. The image is well focused, super sharp and the composition is lovely. Thanks for sharing. Best regards

Ciao amico Silvio,

Superb macro capture of this pretty Comma taken from an excellent POV, you have captured it with outstanding sharpness and great detail! Colours and vertical composition are excellent too.
TFS and have a nice day!


Ciao Silvio.

Ciao Silvio. Ripeto. Ho l'impressione che quest'anno la C la farà da padrona. Bel POV questo che ce la mostra sopra un soffice cuscino di fiori. Macro luminosa edettagliata. Motlo bene.

Hello Silvio,
The photo is bit busy. Outside the butterfly there's a lot to see. But a very nice photo in good sharpness, bright colours and an excellent composition. Very nice contrasting plain BG.

Hola Silvio,
Ah... una 2010's! que hermosa, me gusta la selección de corte vertical y la composición compleja y desafiante. El nivel de luz es perfecto, sosteniendo magníficos detalles y color en las difíciles flores blancas. La mariposa es absolutamente el punto central y relevante de esta foto repleta de elementos. Gracias por compartir, saludos, Jesús
