Çiçek de kelebeğin renkleriyle tam uyuşmuş :)
Ellerinize sağlık, her zamanki gibi süper olmuş Seyfi bey.

beautiful species with perfect sharpness, good contrast and nice colors.

Dear Seyfi!

I like your picture about the Dark Clouded Yellow very much. It's a beautiful butterfly and you have put it well on stage. I like the fact that this "Yellow" is sitting on a yellow flower! From the technical point of view, I particulalrly like the fine depth of view and the superb lighting that highlights the natural colours.

Kind regards

Markus

Seyfi, you have manage to place your camera in a perfect parallel position towards the body of the butterfly! Very good dept of field and perfect focus as a result of this! Is this violet, purple cast around the wings natural? Great, valuable notes!

Merhaba Seyfi,
excellent close up of this yellow. Very sharp and lovely rich yellows. The butterfly isso well defined and the yellow flower is very complementary to your composition.
Nice and simple, but exciting view.

Hello Seyfi,
A beautiful portrait of a handsome butterfly, shown in this luminous picture. Colias crocea was almost totally absent in my country, I think I just have seen one or two this year. So, it is a pleasure to see it again here on TN.
Thanks and kind regards

Hi Seyfi,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the Clouded Yellow butterfly. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. have a nice day.
