Bonjour Horia,
So precise your shot that it will surely help others to compare and find out about species. Excellent sharpness and good classical composition.
Very well done.
Kind regards

Such a specimen with this drawing formed on its wings!! irisgwen

this is an amazing and perfect pic, TFS Ori

Bonsoir Horia
J'aime beaucoup ta Mellicté posée comme sur un écrin.
Un Grand bravo

Hi Horia,

The flower is framiing well the butterfly. The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the Nikerl's Fritillaru butterfly. The blurry background is putting in evidence the butterfly. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. have a nice day.


Superb fluturas! Inca nu l-am intalnit pe aici pe langa Sighisoara
