Oczywiscie motylek. Motylki sa najlepsze a nie jakies tam wazki ;-) Ganialem w tym roku taka kilka razy ale oczywiscie nie byla chetna do pozowania ze o chwili spokojnego siedzenia na kwiatku nie wspomne ;-) Fajna ostra fotka (moze bym leciutko przejechal unsharp mask) z ladnie rozmytym tlem.
Pozdrawiam

Hello Grzegorz,
why not? You show that you can also shoot good butterfly pictures (:-D
It is a brilliant and sharp picture of Issoria lathonia (Nymphalidae). The contrast against the background works well - the butterfly stands out clearly.
You achieved superb sharpness over the entire wing surface up to the antennae tips.
Best wishes, Peter

Witaj,
Bardzo ciekawe zdjęcie.
Bardzo podobają mi się oczy tego motylka - wygląda jakby się patrzył do tyłu :)
Naturalne kolory i bdb ostrość to kolejne walory tego zdjęcia.
Pozdrawiam Małgosia

Hi Greg,

You have made a very good photo of the butterfly! I like the sharp image of the butterfly placed on the blurry background. Wings pattern is well shown with nice clear details. Colors look natural nad the reachness of tones is well rendered.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian

Excellent shot of this nice specimen! The sharpness is really perfect, which is not easy to do. Congratulations,
Catherine

BRAVO

well done

Witaj Grzegorzu,
w tym roku trzy razy udało mi się podejść Dostojkę lathonia - za każdym razem pozostało tylko miłe wspomnienie. Twoje zdjęcie jest super, ostrość złapana tam gdzie trzeba (nie rozumiem komentarzy typu:nie złapałeś ostrości na końcach skrzydeł - jeżeli motyl jest żywy to nimi porusza i nie będą one tak ostre jak reszta motyla), kolory nasycone i naturalne. No i oczywiście kompozycja fotki jest bezbłędna.
Gratuluję i pozdrawiam
Alina

Hallo Greg
That is a great close-up. You have captured an excellent clear image with fine details of the butterfly's wing structure. Light is very well used giving nice bright colour tones. Nice composition due to good position of the butterfly. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
Anna

Kompletnie nie znam sie na motylach. Podziwiam je nie tylko w naturze, ale i na fotkach wystawianych na TN. Makrofotografia to całkowicie inna bajka - to nie to, co do tej pory mnie najbardziej absorbowało. dajmy na to ten motyl: potrzeba szczęścia, umiejętności i cierpliwości. Kto ma te wszystkie rzeczy na raz? Piekny kadr. Motyl jakby celowo zapełnił je rozpostartymi skrzydłami - pewnie w nagrodę za Twój wysiłek. Świetnie oddane szczegóły górnej części owada, ładne kolory i pięknie dobrane tło.
Pozdrawiam,
Jurek

Hi Grzegorz,

just great, how you were able to detach this butterfly from its background and let the colours shine. The light was well chosen. All perfect, it's a pleasure to the eye!
Best regards
Dietrich

Hello Greg,
Splendid capture of the Queen of Spain that seems to be the most common Fritially in N. Europe this year! Excellent POV and very sharp fine details and beautiful colours too.
Well done!
TFS and cheers, Ulla
