Hi Chris

Another great shot from you! A splendid butterfly capture!
Really lovely colors, excellent POV, very good DOF and suerp sharp details are only some of the elements that make this such a great post.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

A very attractive image of this little butterfly. A little more DOF would have been nice to get the wingtips sharp, but this is often easier said than done ;) There seems to be a slight blue colour cast to the photograph?

Hi Chris,
Nice capture. Good crips focus and nice composition. The colours are beautiful yet not overly saturated. You did a good job at keeping the texture of the butterfly intact. Maybe I would prefer a slightly tighter crop but that's just my opinion.
Well done and TFS

Beau papillon, bel arrière-plan.
Bonne journée.

Hi Chris,
I like this P. icarus from your rich repertory very much! The silvery-blue tones are so crystal bright (a pity the left front wing got somewhat out of focus, but that's life), the background very soothing and harmonious. Thanks a lot for sharing this shot taken from an advantageous perspective,

Hi Chris,
Outstanding shot with such fantastic blue colours and sharpness on its wings. Nice pose captured and the darkish BG works wonders here in highlighting the subjects perfectly. Great DOF and well chosen POV to portray it. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour chris.
Un joli mâle, trés jolie photo, superbe prise.Amitiés antonio.
