Hello Chris,
this will be one of my favourites. I like sharp and naturally coloured pictures of Lycaneidae. The specimen is excellently focused and very sharp, wing scales are nicely seen and the colour pattern is presented in a professional way. Light and composition are beautiful.
Best wishes, Peter

Wonderful image of this lovely small butterfly and flower.
Excellent sharpness, lighting and very precize depth of field with only the butterfly in sharp focus.
Beautiful colors, details in the wing and contrast.
The soft color tones in the background are very pleasing and do match wonderfully to the image.

Hello Chris,
Very fine sharp capture of a species of Plebejus showing the underside. Though I wonder if this is argyrognomon, as the wings are rather narrow in this shot: I suspect that this might be a female P. idas.
I am quite familiar with argyrognomon in Sweden where it is now unfortunately threatened with extinction.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Chris,
Beautiful capture of this blue butterfly. I like the point of view and details and colours are perfect. Beautiful light too and a fine soft background.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hello Chris,

What a great capture of this small butterfly! I love the details created by the tangent light! It emphasizes the textures in the wings. The composition is very good and the perfectly blurred background isolates the butterfly from the surroundings. The colors are natural and well saturated and I just love the way you emphasized the blue spots on the wings. Great job!

With Friendly Regards,

Hi Chris

Hi Chris,
Beautiful butterfly and you have captured it with lovely colours and sharp details. Against the smooth BG the subjects stand out well and the natural lighting looks great here. Excellent POV to portray this nice pose and a superb composition. Kudos.

Very nice composition with the subtle pastel colors. Interesting position of the butterfly. Good BG. Well done.


Hi Chris,

I like composition and colors.
