Hi Fevzi!

You present us a beautiful butterfly picture. The great lighting management and the pure colours make it an outstanding one. I only regret the little dust spots on the background.

Kind regards


Lovely shot Fevzi! The composition is perfect and the colours too. That's a very nice presentation of this butterfly. TFS,

Hola Fevzi.
WOW. Excellent Macro. Lovely colors. Very sharp image, and the pose and BG also looks very fine.


This is an excellent photograph. The color combination, composition, sharpness and details are all top notch. Wonderful work. TFS.

Best Regards,


Hi Fevzi,

beautiful macro shot with very good sharpness and nice colors.
Composition is fine, too.

Hi Fevzi,
as a good photographer you used the transparent light to render this Aporia fairylike, graceful. Well done, Fevzi. I only think you applied too much saturation of the blue Echium, the flower "competes" for attention with the butterfly.
My best regards

Hallo Fevzi
A great and colourful photograph. A fine-looking butterfly, sitting on a beautiful blue flower. I like to look at butterfly images because their patterns and markings are delightful, and this one of yours with its dark veins and markings is no exception. Butterflies patterns differ and are interesting, like a humans fingerprints. Each pattern and marking tells a different and beautiful story. Although this butterfly was not blessed with colourful patterns and markings or bright colours, the texture of its wings are so soft and delicate looking and that is what makes this image so great. Well seen and captured. Thanks for sharing, and have an enjoyable day.
Best regards

Hi Fevzi

Hi Fevzi
