This is elegance incarnate, Silvio.
A stunningly beautiful composition in which the butterfly sits primly on a lovely pink flower.
The markings on both sides of its wings are beautifully recorded.
Couldn't think of a better BG too.

Ciao Silvio,
Beautiful buterfly, great details and colors.
Good pov and dof. Good note

Hallo Silvio
A well focused shot of this colourful butterfly. Crisp clear with all details clearly seen. I especially like the hair on the wings and body. A lovely presentation which fills the frame perfectly. Thank you for sharing this special image with us. Good composition with a lovely green background. The pinkish flower is a lovely part of the image and adds extra spark to an already lovely image. It is always nice to see the inner and outer side of a butterfly's wings. The difference is remarkable. Well done, thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Merhaba Silvio,
çok güzel bir kompozisyon; renkler, netlik ve arka plan çok güzel olmuş.
Tebrik ederim.

A beauty indeed Silvio, the wing venation is very evident in this top-illuminated b.fly which also sports fine underwing details in this sharply focused and correctly exposed study. TFS and cheers my friend,

Hello Silvio, beautiful picture yet again! This one is so best! Beautiful background, colors, sharpness and contrast. Beautiful angle for gentle lighting. Love the colors and patterns on this butterfly. TFS.
