This sappho is worn but the capture is sharp and fresh-looking. The harsh lighting was well managed to five a fine exposure and natural colours and the composition with the leaf Bg is perfect.
A very fine portrait of this species of Neptis and I thank you for sharing it.
Enjoy your weekend,

a very good macro shot of this marvellous butterfly, fine details, perfect, not easy exposure with splendid colour tones, excellent POV and composition
Have a good weekend
Great picture of this lovely butterfly from your trip to Romania, Peter. Your simple point-and-shoot camera has produced a marvellous picture with superb clarity and richness of details.
It is a pleasure to view your work as and when you share it with us.

Shadow of the beautiful butterfly antenna and a "W" formed. Well composed shot. Excellent details on the wings.
Have a nice weekend,
Gute Idee den Schwarzbraunen Trauerfalter mit geöffnetetn Flügel zu zeigen.
Schön in Szene gesetzt auf dem feinen grünen Blatt, das ihm den perfekten
Hintergrund und Farbkontrast liefert. Ich staune immer wieder über die guten Bilder, die Deine Sony Cybershot liefert! Auch ist der Fotograf nicht zu vergessen.
Ein schönes Wochenende noch

Hi, dear Peter.
Once more brilliant shot. Precise reproduction of all details of the beautiful butterfly and so impressive leaves. Bright sunlight is fine and it is a great pleasure to watch such sunny shot in these days. Exposure and colour reproduction are stunning. Every colour shade is visible perfectly. I also amazed with shadow from insects. Antennas in the shadows are crisp sharp too and give some charm to shot. Colours are awesome as well as composition is. Bravo. Great job.
P.S. Your suggestion is wonderful. Unfortunately I cannot make long trips because of my very old health problem. Only short (2-3 days) trips by car are accessible to me. Many thanks.

such a beautiful capture of this striped butterfly. The sharpness is excellent and the wide opened wings are really fascinating in giving the details and the refined view of its features.
Abundance light really pushes this view into a wonderful one.

Du bist wieder da, ich eigentlich nicht. Hab Dank für deine Bemerkungen zum Laufkäfer.
Mit gefällt am Bild die Komposition und die Falterart, der ich noch nie begegnet bin, meine Entomologen- Seele eben.
herzliche Grüsse, Dieter

Although you said this photo isn't your best, I like it a lot, plus I'm very jealous. :) I only saw this species once in my life, on a very special day (please read the story here - although this species isn't included among the mention 7). I tried to capture the specimen at least 50 times, but all my photos became a piece of sh*t - yours is not only acceptable, but pleasing to the eyes, both light- and composition-wise. Thank you for sharing this beauty.
Friendly regards, László
