Hi Christodoulos,
Fantastic macro of this mating couple with superb clarity, great fine details, gorgeous lighting, marvellous composition and splendid natural colors. I love the beautiful patterns on the eyes. Very well done, my friend. Thanks and have a nice day!
As the rating signs are missing below, sorry I have to add two points with a smiley to you this way.

Top draw stuff here Chris, well done,

Best Regards,


Amazing clarity here , those striped eyes are special . Love the exposure and details .. I would have preferred a more rectangular aspect ratio as i feel this square ratio makes this composition bit tight
