Bonjour Mario,

It's great You returned, we missed You. As always in the past, fantastic composition, sharpness, background, clearness on Your pic. Contrast is awesome between the b-fly, the pink flowers and the pale green bg, excellent exposure, plenty of details on the butterfly. Bravo MF.

Best regards from Your old friend, László

Hi Mario,

I'm soooooo glad to see you again! You have been missed. No beautiful bird this time but a truly wonderful butterfly near the pretty flowers. The colors are stunning and the details are superb. I love the shape of the wings and the striking yellow and white patterns on the black. The composition is beautiful.
