Sorry if I sound a little too persistent ;)
Here's another look at the same butterfly...
I guess this one's better than the one I posted last night...
Thanks for looking!

PS: As usual, thanks Ivan, for ID'ing the butterfly!

Hi Goldy,

I guess if Bayram is both of our little brothers we must be related too! You have a new camera!!! There must be a tremendous learning curve going to a DSLR from the S2. You are much braver than I. Excellent details of the face and wings. A nice pose on the green leaf. Of course I cannot help with the ID - I don't know one butterfly or bug from another. Congratulations on your new equipment - I bet you love it.


Ciao Goldy,
bellissima cattura, ottimi POV e composizione, eccellenti nitidezza e definizioine dei dettagli.

Hello Goldy, nice to see you again.
Excellent shot,very sharp,nice light and color,
I wish to you to enjoy your new equipment,

Hi Goldy,

This one looks indeed better than your previous post.
Good pov and details.
I don't believe that I have been seen this specie in the wild.

Hello Goldy
A lovely capture of this butterfly in a classic pose.The sharpness and details are very good.Very good POV and DOF too.The lighting and colours are very nice.TFS

Quite a nice side-lighted macro capture Goldy, your good focusing and exposure provide us with a high degree of definition regarding the lateral aspect of this b.fly. TFS indeed!

Hello Goldy,
Very nice shot and not an easy one with the light. You have done it very nice. Well done Ganesh

Hi Goldy,
This is much better picture and the details have come out very well.The DOF that you get with ur lens is amazing.

Hello Goldy,
In your own classical style one can make out this macro too from great distance as a perfect composition towards this butterfly for TN. TFS.

Hi Goldy,
This is another beautiful capture of this butterfly. I like those subtle colors and this lovely touch of blue. You managed exposure well and chose excellent aperture that brings out details perfectly. Thanks,

Hello Goldyji, Thank you for sharing this beauty. Excellent one. Vignesh

Persistence is a virtue:-) Not a fault...no need to apologize....Very nice image without being totally blown out...of course good camera+good eye= good image right?

Hello Goldy,
Very sharp picture of the Mottled Emigrant, showing a fine blue colour shining through the wings. We almost never see the upper wings of this butterfly and I really wonder how it looks. May be you will catch one in the future..
Thanks and best regards

hello Godly

this excellent shot is more beautiful that the previous one,
with very fine POV, DOF and framing, beautiful lumnosity
of the image, excellent sharpness and details, TFS

Hello Goldy! Excellent macro my friend, superbly sharp details and perfect exposure, well done my friend!


Hello Goldy,
Very nice image from the 350D indeed!
the exposure and focus is excellent with good sharpness, nice natural colour and details in the shot
well done

Hello Goldy,
I do like 'mottled' butterflies; the tones and shades are always very subtle. This one is no exception. A beautiful species well phtographed.
Very good focus and well composed.
Well done
Thans for sharing...
