hello Mukadder,

Welcome to TN.
This is a good capture of the butterfly showing good textural details of its wings and antennae, as well as the pretty flowers.
I think a slightly tighter crop would have positioned the butterfly perfectly in the frame and given us an even better close up.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Muko,
Interesting butterfly with good definition and colours. Maybe a tighter crop would have been beneficial. Thanks.
