Hi Silvio
Super capture of this African Wild Dog. It co-operated with you with regards to a good POV. Super DOV and light management. Everything is sharp. Interesting BG (fuzzy leaf?) it compliments the butterfly nicely.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

這種翅膀內部漂亮 外面樸素的還真是少見

This Satyr seems to be resting on the velvety leaf, Silvio.
At focal point 29.0, the image has turned out to be razor sharp.
Great details and colours.

Hi, Silvio
There is no doubting the sharpness of this image - which is not surprising, perhaps, with flash and a very small aperture. This is a very finely detailed image, but it does look a little "hard" on my screen, perhaps because of the dominance of the flash over the natural light.
Best wishes, Nigel.
