[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't know how I would thank you all for the nice words at my previous post. I have really no time to stay more time here to comment on every extraordinary picture from you that I have missed.
In place of those comments, I would like to dedicate to to all of you another butterfly from my trip home. This one was quite difficult to photograph: it was hearing the sound of my camera and was flying away too fast. So, I could not have a decent image from the back prezenting the wings or from the profile. I manage anyway to take this image,with the ligth behind the butterfly. Maybe it is an interesting approach, so I would be really pleased if I will receive some oppinions.

He was sitting on a common nettle, so it was hardlly to approach more. Cropped and added some sharpness.

Hello Oana my neigbour today!
Nice capture with a beautiful light throught the wings. I think it is the Pararge aegeria or Speckled Wood. Good evening,

Hi Oana,
A nice capture of this beautiful speckled wood butterfly. Very well composed shot with good details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

  • Great

Hi Oana, again.
This butterfly under backlight on a gracious leaf is looked so attractively. Composition of the shot and POV are spot on. Colourfulness, illumination and smoothness of the BG are also very pleasant for eyes. Thanks a lot and best wishes.

Buna Oana!
felicitari!si pentru straduinta si pentru ceea ce ai reusit. Excelent focudul pe capul acestui fluture, culori naturale, bun si unghiul ales. Fundalul deasemenea de exceptie!


Buna Oana,
Un fluturas frumos si plin de lumina.
Soarele strabate interesant aripile acestui fluture.
Culori naturale placute.
Un weekend placut!
