Hi Mariana . A fine close up of this Butterfly. Taken with a fine side view so we can see the closed wing markings. A nice pose on the flowers. I am sure Asbed will like the picutre . TFS.

Hi Mariana,

A wonderful dedication to our dear friend Asbed. A beautiful butterfly posing so nicely on the daisies. The yellow of the flower enhances the yellow/orange of the wings markings.

Buna Mariana MF!,

Stunning macro, your placement of the butterfly is wonderful. Great focus and exposure too. Also wonderful dedication our mutual friend Asbed!
TFS and have a nice day MF!

Ps. Nice to know that you and Horia liked my dedication!

Buna Mariana,
Ma bucur sa vad asa o prezentare frumoasa de la o maramuresana de-a mea ( sint din Baia Mare,de origine)
Poate stii sau poate nu,dar se pare ca in poze cifrele impare totdeauna arata mai bine decit cele pare: trei e mai bine ca doi, unu e mai bine ca doi...Nu stiu cum, dar se pare ca cele trei floricele arata mai bine ca doua, chiar si in poza ta.
Poate ca cea din mijloc inseamna echilibru iar unde ai doi nu este un mijloc, nu este echilibru.
Numai bine,

Buna Mariana,
Iti urmaresc imaginile de ceva vreme iar aceasta imi place in mod deosebit...culorile, claritatea, backgroundul care contrasteaza cu primul plan fac din aceasta fotografie una excelenta.
Numai bine,

This is a excellent composition.

Three objects in a composition seems to do magic to capture our attention and allow us to focus to the main subject.

I also really like the background in good harmony of tones with the butterfly.

A small suggestion would be to try toning down the highlights, just to obtain more details on the yellow part of the flowers, but this is being very picky..

An other of your fine work, congratulations
