Hello Marina,

This is a great picture of a Red Admiral butterfly (Vanessa atalanta). It is very common in Europe and it has visited and will visit your garden very often. It's just that you didn't pay attention so far. Your new hobby opened your eyes to a world you didn't know before.
This composition is excellent! I like where you placed the subject, how you distributed the empty space and the fact that you included the leaf in the composition. I would have preferred a cleaner background but this is a minor point. Besides, it isn't always under our control. The pose of the butterfly is lovely too.
The colors are very bright and well saturated and the textures in the wings are great. The good exposure rendered great details. Well done my friend! Thank you!

With Friendly Regards,

PS: I don't know where you live and whether the fires in Greece caused any damage to you but I am happy that the situation is under control and the fires are all killed. Keep well!
