Hello Dejan,
you present a quality picture of this small Satyrine species. I appreciate the natural colours and the natural setting. Focus and sharpness are pretty good. Recently, I posted a picture of the closely related species C. gardetta. I would like to include your picture in my planned Theme no. 2 on Satytinae, here at TN. Is that o.k.?
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Dejan.
Wonderful butterfly!
Excellent colors and contrast.
Pleasant natural luminosity.
Species unusual in my region.
Best wishes,
José Roberto

Hello Dejan,
Fine capture of C. arcania, a species that we also have in Sweden. Though this specimen is a little worn you present it sharply and in a fine composition with the fern leaf BG.
Well done and thanks,

Hi Dejan,
Very well composed sharp macro of this beautiful butterfly. Perfect exposure. The bright green BG is fantastic.

Hi Dejan,
precisely detailed, aesthetically very pleasing presentation of Coenonympha on fern leaves, both well describing and atmospheric. Beautiful dim light, wonderful depth from lighted parts in front into the distant shadows, and subtle natural colours. With thanks, and best regards,

Bonsoir Dejan
il est magnifique ce papillon, la pose, les couleurs la netteté, sont réunis pour une bonne détermination de l'espèce.
Merci et Bravo
