Seyfi Bey merhaba
müthil güzel bir tür, harika bir çalışma. renkler, kadraj, açı ve netlik hepsi çok güzel. elinize sağlık.
bu güzeli İstanbulda nerelerde aramalıyız. sık rastlanır mı?
bir ihtimal haftasonuna doğru kuşlar için geleceğim. tavsiyelerinize göre bunu ve birkaç nymphalid türünü daha özellikle görmek istiyorum.
selamlar.

Merhaba Seyfi Bey, güne bu güzelim pelerinli dilberle başlamak ne güzel:). Submarginallerdeki mavi noktaların dizilimi çok güzel. Benim daha önce görmediğim bir güzellik. Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık.
Kızılgerdan gerçekten çok tatlı ve tabiri yerindeyse tam "zıppır" bir kuş. Ben onu izlemeye doyamıyorum. Çok da eğlenceli. Geçenlerde -ki dün bir kollajını yükledim- çılgınca yıkanmasını ve su içmek için kafasını hortuma soktuğunu gözledim:) Gülmekten kırıldım.
Sevgiler ve selamlar.
Bayram

Hi Seyfi,

You are finding the most beautiful butterflies! This Mourningcloak is magnificent with the deep rich colors and fine details. I love the blurred white flowers in the background and the diagonal composition.

Hallo Seyfi
Absolute delightful. Such a splendour of colours and texture. Almost velvetty. Indeed a feast to the eye. Gives me much pleasure looking at this pretty butterfly with its wide opened wings. Photography is super sharp with great focus and composition. Thanks for sharing this beauty.
Best regards.

Hello Seyfi,
This butterfly is one of the most difficult to make a good picture of, because of the color-contrast on its wings. You succeeded well to take a sharp and natural picture of Nymphalis antiopa for which I envy you. Good diagonal presentation too.
Thanks also for the note.
Kind regards
Anne

Hi Seyfi.

This is such a beautiful butterfly.
The wings are so well dressed like a cloak.
Excellent sharpness and bright markings on the wings.
Pleasing framing and well done indeed.
