From the pic you can almost feel how soft the wings are. Very nice. Amazing how you caught the detail of the veins, even though the light wasn't exactly on your side.
Beautiful, well done! (no idea about the flower .. sorry!)

Hi Robert, what a super shot of the sleeping b'fly. Wonderful sharpness and details, I can even see the dew on the wings, making it look very beautiful and exquisite. And you have another insect in the BG too. Well done.

It's great to see you posting whilst being in der Schweiz. :) This is a wonderful butterfly. Excellent details, great POV and marvelous colors. I have no idea what the pink flower is. If you don't know, who will?? ;) Enjoy the rest of your holiday. TFS!

Hi Rob, lovely shot :). I think gaussian blur or NeatImage might help with a slightly noisy BG but everything else is perfect - colours, composition, exposure, detail and sharpness are all spot on. Beautiful, TFS :)
PS Didn't know there was a black veined white until I read your post...I assumed it was a green veined white. This makes it all the more special and I'm glad your early morning walk paid off so handsomely. Very well done :)
Robert, a beauty. There seems to be some noise on the bg; anyway, a minor nit.
Excellent colors and contrast. Composition is perfect.
If I'm not mistaken, there seems to be another insect, on the bottom, on the bg, on the left. It seems to be an insect, but I'm not sure, for the bg is (properly) oof.

I always wondered how you got such clear beautiful photos of butterflies, I'm sure they all don't cooperate as well as this one and nap for you. Very lovely, the delicate pink flower is a wonderful backdrop for these delicate wings. Very nice.

Personal assessment of the photo: excellent.
Very strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: more than complete.
Thank you very much for sharing.

je visite votre site et vois cette jolie photo aux détails très bon pour ce papillon.
en visitant je m'aperçois que vous diffuser beaucoup de photos mais que celles-ci ne vous rapportent pas un grand nombre de points a chaque photo !!!! mis a part les papillons qui eux plaisent toujours et vous obtenez les points peit a petit avec beaucoup d' images. vous avez la chance de travailler dans la nature, si je vous diffusais les photos de mon travail, cela vous ferez pleurer
mais encore bravo pour ce BUTTERFLY, j' en ai diffusé un comme cela aussi, mais bien sur a vos yeux !!! bien moins joli.
