Hola Mauricio
Bella foto, llena de hermoso colorido. Finos detalles en las alas de la mariposa. La nitidez e iluminacion son exelentes.

Hi My friend Maurizio, another excellent capture of a red admiral in a fine diagonal composition with grat clarity, nice colours and framing. TFS.

Ciao Maurizio,

This is a fine capture of a Red Admiral butterfly. The texture of his wings looks like velvet, and the colours are exact!
It makes a fine composition with the angled view on the daisies.

These used to be one of the most common butterflies in our area and I have only seen one this year!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Maurizio. Another excellent capture of this beauty in tighter framing. Excellent sharp focus with markings on the wings well established. TFS and best regards. Jusni

I must say that from my point of view your butterfly pictures are among the best ones on TN. I particularly appreciate the way you put them on stage and your art of combining the insects and the flowers. Your pictures simply are beautiful and so pleasant to look at!

Kind regards

Hi Maurizio.
Splendid specimen of Vanessa you have pictured by the best way. Impressive magnification and details of the butterfly Set of nicely blurred flowers is amazing too. Colours are wonderful as well as strong sunlight of the insect wings and soft lighting of the BG. Bravo and TFS.

Bellissima sotto tutti gli aspetti; anche i fiori di contorno.

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele

Ciao Maurizio, bellissima Vanessa, splendidamente in posa ad ali spiegate, bello lo sfondo con gli Astri, ottimi dettagli e magnifica nitidezza, belli e ben resi i colori, bravo, ciao Silvio
