Hello Eduard, lovely shot, outstanding artistic composition, I like it, a great cheer,
The butterfly's wings are nice and sharp, but it's a shame that it's eye and most of the flowers are out of focus - I think using a smaller aperture would have worked better.
Apart from the depth of field issue this is very well taken. You took it in great light, and the framing works very well - it has good balance and an effective simplicity to it, with no distracting elements.
Good work Eduard.

Thanks for showing us this very beautiful image of a butterfly I've never have seen nore heard of before.
You've done a great job on the image as well as on all the perfect information about the buttefly you are suplying us with.
Technically perfect image with excellent sharpness, composition,, DOF an lighting.
Colors and details are most wonderful and the way the flower and butterfly do stand out against the very pleasing soft background is great.
A real joy to look at.

I never had the chance to see those so special insect in my country... This is a nice composition Eduard, with excellent focus on the wings and body. I don't mind the flower to be a little blurred; this is a superb post, realized with skill and delicacy. Thanks,

I wish I could give you 3 points for this one to make up for... well, you know. This is clearly outstanding photography.
The composition is excellent showing both the butterfly and flower very clearly. Each stand out well and the view of each is unobstructed.
Beautiful warm color tones. The colors are well saturated and look very natural. The subtle changes of color tones on the butterfly wing is easily recognized.
This is outstanding. Subject stands out well from background. The butterfly looks almost 3-D and I think the outstanding contrast also helped to bring out the incredible details shown in butterfly wing.
The light is excellent with the best light highlighting the main subject, the butterfly. I like the way the light works on the flowers as well with shadows creating an appropriate softness here.
You have incredible sharpness on the butterfly. I see ridges and texture in the wing and nice sharp edges. The antennas are perfect in my opinion with just the right amount of sharpness. The focus is a little softer on most of the flower which, I think, is a GOOD thing in this case for artistic value.
Outstanding work and a pleasure to see!

very elegant, beautiful, classically well composed arrangement. For me, Cleopatra is one of the pretties butterflies of Europe. You have shown its subtle colours in a perfect way, with the clear light shaping the structured of its wings very clearly.
Reading of the excessive heat conditions while you were taking the picture I can feel your excitement and determination that made you forget everything around you - in perfect concentration on the subject.
Thank you! My best regards,
