I may come back sometime today...to "play" with it a bit...hopefully this good day of worship for me will be filled with many such options of capture. Take good care and we shall see you on the morrow?!

Merhaba Silvio,
Çok güzel bir kelebek türünü çok iyi işlemişsiniz. Kompozisyon vek adraj da mükemmel. Elinize sağlık.

Ciao Silvio,
mi piace questa composizione diagonale ravvicinata di questa farfalla, la definizione è un po' morbida come in quella mia dell'airone di oggi, stupendo OOF BG.
Grazie e complimenti.
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Silvio,

A beautiful brown butterfly that I am quite sure I have not seen before. Deep rich colors and good details of the markings. Looks very pretty with the flower in front of it.

Hi Silvio. A very dark brown butterfly onei have not seen before so thanks for posting. A good Top view showing the white dots on the wings. TFS.

L'hai vista che è un filo sfocata. Resa ottima e colore credo terribile da gestire. Fantastica la diagonale naturale.



Ciao Silvio,
Great closeness on this Ferula male!
good sharpness, nice colour and details
well done
