Merhaba Seyfi,
excellent sharpness and superb clarity. How lively to see the details and the view of the web too.
Excellent green background and the hairy body is so special.
Well composed in wonderful view.


Ciao Komsis, poor litle butterfly in a splendid macro with wonderful colors, fine details and excellent sharpness, I like a lot, bravo,ciao Silvio

Hi Seyfi

Death is part of the life! You have captured a fascinating and dramatic moment that reflects perfectly well the rules in nature: the traps do not always work, sometimes it's possible to escape, but another one will not have that chance... An interesting and beautiful picture.

Kind regards


Hello Seyfi,

an nice macro shot with good pov, sharpness and dof.
Fine colours.
Exellent blurred bg.


Hallo Seyfi
Excellent shot and great composition. The golden colour with specs of yellow is really vivid and displays beautifully. The sharpness of the details is great and is seen with great clarity. Perfect camerawork. Like always it was a pleasure stopping by your portfolio. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Merhaba Seyfi,
You were lucky to take such a fine shot with an ideal BG while this S. acaciae was caught and the spider was unlucky not to keep it!
Nice sharpness and composition.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Seyfi,
Freedom is so sweet after having been trapped...happy to read that this Satyrum butterfly escaped. Interesting species, not so often shown. Lovely color-combination and good sharpness.
Kind regards

Beautiful photo with nice colours and good composition.

Hi Seyfi,

The butterfly is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Satyrium acaciae butterfly. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
