I love butterflies - they are plenty of colours and plenty of interesting textures. But ususally they are so skittisch. It is difficult to come near and make a picture with my camera. But friday - it was different day. As I wrote my boss gave me free day at work and I met this little butterfly!! Paulo Henrique Lopes Rodrigues wrote me it is a Lycaena dispar
(Linnaeus, 1761). I think it is really beautiful but I was so excited when it set on my hand and spent there more than 5 minutes looking at me ;-)))
I think it was big braveness!!! Now I have a new friend and I hope you will like it!

Perfect picture Joanna. Nice sharp details of the butterfly and beautiful colors.

Hi Joanna,
Excellent capture with good focus and details.
I thought you can remove the overexposed white margin in the top border of the photo.

What a beautiful butterfly Joanna. Details are great and colors are superb. I tried to identify the hand but how do you hold it? What part am I looking at? Anyway, well done & TFS!


Excellent Capture Joanna !
Good composition and great focus, well done.

A beauty and well captured and detailed. Excellent work and composition.
Have you enough honey to feed it.


Excellent macro Joanna revealing lovely details. Your Olympus has good macro capabilities. What has been troubling me is just what part of the hand this is. Little details like this perplex me. I see Pieter has asked this question so now I can rest. Good work.

Lovely shot of this friendly little beauty with great colour and composed!

Hello Joanna!
Your macros are perfect as the others.It looks like telling something to Greg(I think it's Gregs hand).Very nice composition.Thanks for sharing.

Great macro, Joanna.
Very good sharpness, great colours and a nice hand.
The only nit is the light part above.
Very well done.

Hi Joanna, very nice capture. Beautiful details and colours. As for the composition, by leaving the sky and the mountains out of the frame you would have a fine Bg.
Well done.

Hej, Joanno, to już umiecie z Grzegorzem hipnotyzować owady do fotografii? Nic dziwnego, że się pysznił i pięknie pozował. Świetna fotografia.
Pozdr. Al.

Hello Joanna, that's a nice new friend you have. I'd like to know your secret. I chase these things all over fields! Great shot.

Which acrobatics have you makes to carry out this?
I think you always have your 'gun' in your right hand, ready to shot ...
Very nice capture, Laurent

Well composed and good DOF.
Well captured, thanks for posting

Joanna, the butterfly is very beautiful. There seems to be some noise on the bg, but that's no problem.

Great sharpness and composition, very nice colors.

Fantastic capture Joanna. Yes, it really is a special feeling to have one of these guys resting on your hand - you almost forget to take the pictures;-).
Fantastic sharpness, wonderful colours, very clever handling of the light and perfect composition. I am sure he made your day.

Na pewno wyjątkowe zdjecie. Niesty nie udalo mi sie nigdy tak zblizyc do motyla.

You have some amazing luck Joanna, it was obviously a great day in the meadow.
Perfect sharpness and great POV. Composition is good to. Lucky you.

Wonderful image, Joanna, showing how nature can bring us the simpliest joy. Besides the rare moment caught here, your photo is very good and the butterfly shows al it's beauty. So, two pearls in one shot :-). Well done!

to nie jest Lycaena phlaeas - to jest z cala pewnoscia Lycaena dispar, zapewne samica. Bardzo fajny motyl, podobno na tyle rzadko spotykany, ze chroniony...
Tak serio, to kiedys; byl; spotykany tylko na wilgotnych lakach, a teraz... wlasnie, gdzie go spotkalas??

Hola Joanna: is grandiose the form in that you capture the details of this small butterfly, the clarity of its eyes: it reflects fondness and sympathy: I don't know, but, this reminds me a lot to a disney character: mickey mouse. I know that you like butterflies a lot and that you enjoy them: It is wonderful to feel the contact of the butterflies and in general of the animals, it is a very special energy. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*

Muito bonita! E curiosa năo?


Perfeita! Nitidez perfeita e grandeza nos detalhes! Ótimo trabalho, impreessionante!
Parabéns Joanna!

Joanna, hello.
Such a rare thing to happen!! A butterfly sitting on the finger and posing for as many shots as you like! The colours, sharpness, etc. are all absolutely marvellous. Well done to you and your Olympus.
