Liebe Anne,
offenbar ein Foto aus deinem Garten mit dem typischen olivgrünen Hintergrund!?
Ein perspektivisch und von der Belichtung her ein sehr ansprechendes Bild mit 'knackiger' Schärfe.
Ein besonderes Lob verdienen die noch Struktur zeigenden perfekt belichteten Blütenblätter.
Schöne Grüße, Peter
P.S. Am nächsten Samstag geht's nach Korsika!

Waaw Anne,mais quelle merveille aujourd'hui dans ta galerie! Une espece que je n'ai jamais vue chez moi,et une capture vraiment super,avec des details au top malgre' la position un peu diagonale et dans une correcte exposition aussi pour ne bruler le blanc du fleur.Tres bien fait! Mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano

Hi Anne,
Very spectacular and pleasant macro shot with excellent light management on both brighter andd darker parts. Great sharpness on the b-fly, and his / her wings, I mean the color of them, make wonderful contrast with the white daisy. Excellent job! Bravo!
Best regards, László

Hallo Anne.
Ein feines Foto. Die Pose auf der Blume, POV, natürliche Farben und Kontrast mit der BG sind toll und die Zusammensetzung ist sehr gut ausgewählt.Vielen Dank und ein schönes Wochenende. Liebe Grüße Siggi

Hello Anel

Really want to appreciate your idea to crop off part of the pure white flower to maintain attention on the butterfly, main subject of your composition from a nice POV. At least for me that seems to be the reason for such cropping.


Beautiful image with natural colors


Hello Anne,

Hello Anne,
This butterfly reminds me a lot of one I photographed yesterday here in Nicaragua. The wing markings and colors are soooo beautiful and you managed to get close enough to reveal some unique detail, especially around the head area. Great job!!
I believe the one I photographed may be a type of Fritillary also, but I will have to wait until I return home to find out and post it.

dear Anne.
I am glad when I see the sharp and good quality color photograph.
thank you.

best wishes,
Mehran Jahangiri.
