Hi Seyfi. This is a first class close up of this colourful butterfly. Which you have taken with rich colours and fine detail. I like your POV so we can see all of the closed wing markings. stands out well from the plain BG. well done TFS.


Merhaba Seyfi Bey, canlı renkler ile harika bir kelebek makrosu. Elinize sağlık.

hello seyfi
super colours
great sharpness with a good composition
greeting lou

Yeniden Merhaba Seyfi Bey,
Harika bir benekli ki ben de daha önce çekemedim:) Umarım bana da nasip olur. Çok güzel çekmişsiniz. Renkler biraz fazla sature gibi. Yoksa bana mı öyle geldi emin de değilim. Zira daha önce canlısını görmediğim bir kelebek bu.
Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık.

You keep up like this and you shall go places.....especially in your country where talents such as demonstrated here sometimes go unrewarded...but the world community now knows of you!

Hello Seyfi,
Very impressive shot. The colours are really splendid. A perfect focus! Best regards,

Hi Seyfi,

Hello Seyfi
This is really gorgeous. This butterfly is so beautifully shaped and formed and the patterns and details on the wings are striking. It is an eye-catcher indeed. I fancy the orange tips on the striped antennas, and the large blue eye. A lovely macro with great clarity and beautiful "autumn" colours. A most delightful and inviting image to look at and to appreciate. Like always presented in a most favourable manner and I thank you for that.
Best regards.

Hi Seyfi
