Helo Seyfi,
you show a clear and sharp picture of this shy butterfly with a very good contrast
against the smooth and well designed background. The species shown is Lasiommata megera.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Seyfi,
Very natural and beautiful picture of this Satyridae-butterfly on the pretty yellow flower. Peter Roos(batu) suggests that it is not Lasiommata maera, but Lasiommata megera. He is one of the best butterfly-specialist, we have on TN, so may be you could adjust your note in this sense.
Thanks and best regards

Merhaba Seyfi Bey, nefis bir makro. Tam çekim anında hortumda hareketlenme olmuş ama güzelliğinden bence hiçbirşey kaybetmemiş. Bu türün hem alt hem de üst kanat deseni beni hep etklemiştir. Emeğinize sağlık.

Very beautifully captured with briliant sharpness.
The colours are so lovely with rings and dots.
The yellow flower is very exciting and it gives a pretty impact to the composition.
