Hi Paul,
Outstanding shot with bright colours and immaculate sharpness. I like this perspective of this beautiful butterfly and those lovely flowers has a few more tiny visitors too. Great DOF isolate is from the BG and the lighting is perfect here. Wonderful composition. Kudos.

Hallo Paul,

apart standpunt van de vlinder, denk een soort Parelmoervlinder? In ieder geval in Nederland een zeldzame soort.

Mooie kleuren en goed scherp, ook de bloemen staan er goed op.
Mooie dof met prima achtergrond.

groet Gert

Hi Paul!

A cada observação, uma nova descoberta...

The flowers alone would make a lovely shot,but the butterfly makes this a wonderful capture.
Excellent lighting and colours.

Hi Paul,
nice, this sommer greeting card with the Fritillary and two or more Oedemera lurida beetles. The composition, colors, DOF, all is perfect. I don't know what you mean with "off again" but like you I'm looking forward to the macro season! Well done, thanks.
Best regards

Ha Paul,

Prachtig shot
prima DOF
perfecte scherpte
uitstekende compo
ik ben blij dat de temperatuur weer aan het oplopen is (het lijkt wel weer zomer)
