Hi Lukas,
Great shot of this Blue, and a beautiful flower too. Nicely framed, excellent detail and colour, DOF is perfect as is exposure. Great shot.

Beautiful shot and colorful composition Lukas.
Great colors on the butterfly and superb details.
I love the POV and the BG.

Great shot of this common blue on the red clover with a very effective separation from the BG.

TFS and PT
