Witaj Alina,
A fine macro of Jodis lactearia, a geometer that is not rare in the south of my country but one that i have not seen for years.
Though a little OE in parts the sharpness, colours and composition are excellent.
Thanks and best regards,

  • Great

Hello Alina
davvero molto bella. Questa piccola Jodis Lactearia sei riuscita ad incorniciarla in tutta la sua bellezza con un'eccezionale messa a fuoco: colori e luce molto tenui che danno proprio quel senso di tranquillità che caratterizza il leggero svolazzare della Geometridae. Un ottimo lavoro.

Hello Alina
a absolute fantastic shot !! the detail are so fine and so clear, and the white wings are so well captured with superb light effect who makes them shiny,
i love also the great DOF and the composition
Have a good night

In my truly opinion: it`s great! The only minus (i`m sure you know it as well as I do): a hazy leaf`s top. Good work!

simply beautiful, congratulations !

I like the soft butterfly colors and details,

ciao, tino
