Hello Ana,
What a surprise in your garden, what a beauty!
You made this photo in great sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours, nicely contrasting against the background. Fine composition.

I'm drawn towards my neighbor on the gallery today by the sheer appeal of her picture!
Ana, you have created magic in this picture of a huge Swallowtail butterfly. It is so sharp, crisp and beautiful!
Keep on repeating the feat, young lady!!


Hello Ana,
A fascinating photo with razor sharp details, very nice colors and perfect exposure. Excellent composition taken from a perfect POV with lovely light and best clarity. As usual a lovely image with a species not very often seen here on TN.

Hello aNa,
It seems to me everyone above expresses much appreciation for this image. Peter says it is a beauty. Ram even talks about magic. Marius says it is a gift for him. They even say the details are razor sharp and that it is a great macro. Can you believe it? Yes I can and I do. What a pleasure. And they are great photographers, knowing what they are talking about. Well done aNa, your photography has come on in leaps and bounds. It is a pleasure to view. Best wishes.

Hi Ana!
Excellent macro my friend. You captured the butterfly with perfect focus and fine details.
Very good contrast against the green leaves.
Well done: congratulations.
Ciao! Vanda

Dear Ana,
It was a surprise in your garden... but it's no surprise your photography becomes better and better. Awesome macro shot, excellent composition and acceptable sharpness (may be increased slightly, but not too much), overall a beautiful image which is so pleasant to the viewer's eyes. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards, László
