Hello Anne,
What a lovely photo. Sharpness and details are awesome and the colours are splendid. You took it from a perfect POV in a perfect composition.

Hello Anne,
Remarkable photo. This interesting flower and butterfly have wonderful colors. The contrast against the background is superb. Very nice composition taken from a excellent low POV with perfect light and best clarity. I did not found this species in my region....
Thanks for sharing!

A powerful close-up image of the Dusky Meadow Brown perched on a beautiful flower, Anne. Another little creature perched on the stem of the flower looks like an unintentional bonus with the main draw! :)
As usual, your compositions have an irresistible appeal about them.

Good evening Anne,

I´m much impressed by the quality of this image. It´s very sharp with great details, moreover the light and colours are very fine. Perfect choice of composition to. A very nice work!

Best Regards,


Hello Anne
照的清晰 蝴蝶真是漂亮 光線充足使蝴蝶特別亮麗
構圖美麗 背景深遂 謝謝分享

Hello Anne,
Lovely closeup and details of texture is remarkable.Perfect POV and a well balanced composition.

Hi Ann,

A super photo! I like the somewhat vertical orientation of the satyrniid ... such POV sets it apart from the usual that we see. Mostly fine focus and natural colors too, especially the orange with purple flowers! As pointed out by Ram, I also like your little green bonus nymphal Reduviidae (Hemiptera). He is undoubtedly feeding on aphids (more obscure on the stem). Thanks for posting.


another excellent image of butterfly from you. nice colors and good closeup. the flower is really suiting the frame. good work.

impressive macro imaging performance, the quality on top!
regards Anne

Hallo Anne,
Meine Lieblings-Fotomodelle im Sommer sind Schmetterlinge, aber in meinem Stadtgebiet sind sie immer seltene .Dein hier ist, wie üblich, perfekt ins Licht gebracht. Kleines Ochsenauge ist nicht leicht wegen den Härchen zu fotografieren.Liebe Grüße Siggi

Bonjour Anne

Excellent macro de ce papillon, dans une belle lumière,
excellent POV pour montrer ses patterns,
superbe focus, netteté, et détails, TFS


Ciao Anne. Great close up excellent details and beautiful natural colours. Brava!
