Nice butterfly shot. I have never seen this Fritillary. Outstanding focus with nice detail. I like the exposure with the natural back light revealing more clearly the pattern in the beautiful orange wings.

Çok güzel pastel renkler ve netlik

Hello Ahmet,
This is a beautiful specie that you captured with nice colors, details. I also like this good composition and control you had on what seems to have been a difficult exposure. Well done! Thanks,
