A very nice capture of a Marbled White nicely seen in its natural grassy habitat. You took this male from a fine POV with excellent sharpness and DOF. I wish we had this species in my country!
Thanks and all the best,

I also wish we had this beauty in Sweden, I remember it well from England! You've captured it in a nice pose and where it stands out nicely from the background. Great focus and a fine composition too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

You captured this Marbled White is a marvelous position - I like it even better than with the wings wide open. The black and white are so elegant. Superfine sharpness and clarity against a lovely background. The composition is beautiful.

A lovely POV, and some great details, Nick!
Beautiful use of the light as well!

The soft evening light creates a fine atmosphere and give the colours a warm tone. The butterfly is well highlighted and the depth of view is superb. From my point of view, the main subject is a bit too centered, but this is so personal...
Many thanks and kind regards

A fine capture of this Marbled White taken from a nice POV on a beautiful sunny day
great sharpness on the wings and wonderful colors, nice grassy BG
Have a good night
A fine pose from the 'marbled white' butterfly, allowing you to capture both its wings and its furry body. The good dof shows it off well against the oof b/g.
Might I suggest that a crop of the vegetation, surrounding the butterfly, would give it more attention by bringing it closer to the viewer. I have done a w/s to explain my view. I hope you like the changes and are not offended by me 'messing' with your shot.
