Ciao Silvio,
saranno contenti gli amici olandesi di questo sgargiante arancione, che non ha nulla da invidiare a quello del maschio della sua specie congenere "dispar", ottima definizione, ma il coltpo d'occhio lo crea il contrasto di colori molto ben saturati e luminosi, un'immagine traboccante di luce estiva.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Ooohhh, I need sunglasses for this one, Silvio. Brilliant and the butterfly seems to glow - like the german name is telling you: Dukaten Feuerfalter - Fire-butterfly.
Thanks, so pretty

Hi Silvio,

Lovely contrast between the butterfly and flower, both in color and in sharpness.

A very nice souvenir of summer that is gone...

TFS,

Ishi

Hallo Silvio
The colours of this butterfly's wings are so vivid it is almost overwhelming on the one hand and on the other hand it is so inviting. I have not seen a butterfly with such "hot" and "fuming" colours as this one. The double coloured border on the edges of the wings is so striking and the image as a whole is awesome. Perfect photography my friend - par excel lance! Thanks for sharing this orange beauty. It was indeed a pleasure stopping by. My best regards.

Hello Silvio,
What wonderful colours and excellent sharpness.....
Very nice composition.
Marius.

Hola Silvio,

Excelente fondo, plenamente adecuado para una mariposa que luce un impresionate color, muy buena saturación y solidez de los colores. La composición es -como siempre- muy equilibrada.

Buen trabajo, repleto de nitidez y calidad.

Saludos,

Jesús

Hi Silvio. This small butterfly is so bright in colour. The orange stands out so well. Taken with good detail and afine pOV looking down on the top so we can see the wing markings. well taken TFS.

Hi Silvio,
how could any photographer leave that one out! You did'nt and thank you for that. You mastered the difficult task of avoiding the glare of a white flower. All is perfect in this shot.
best regards
