Hello dear neighbour & friend Silvio,

Hope you are doing fine and the family members are all ok. Once again a superb shot of this tiny butterfly on some magnificent flowers. The light and shade are playing a crucial part in this shot. The butterfly's wings are in shade, only the tips are lit. The focus is sharp and colours all alive. Thanks a lot for sharing a fine photo....take care...warmest regards/Abid

Hello Silvio,
Beautiful composition with great colors. An interesting arrangement of light.

Ciao Silvio. Ne ho una simile con la piccoletta in ombra. Poi ve la mostro. Si intravedono i riflessi azzurri. Hai ben gestito la luce sul fiore. Ottima profondità.
