Buna Horia,
O alta fotografie minunata, de maiestru, claritatea excelenta, culori frumoase, saturate, BG stearsa evidentiaza bine subiectul, felicitari!

Hello Horia,
Very good job, I like the background obtained with f/11, allowing translate certain details of the flowers of the environment. Good job with the butterfly in the foreground, perfectly detailed and with a commendable light. TFS, Regards, Jesús

Je n'ai vu ce papillon qu'une seule fois, et ma phot est beaucoup moins belle que la tienne.

Hello Horia,
magnificent colours with lively flower to give a stunning shot. How i like seeing the sharpness well backed by the blurriness of the background. The yellow-white flower goes very well with the brown butterfly.
The view is indeed very attractive and effective.


Hi MF Horia,

Perfectly composed and focussed macro capture of this pretty colourful and spotted beauty with delihgtful composition and great details.
TFS and have a nice Sunday MF!


Perfect sharpness and a beautiful species to boot... but what makes this picture stand out from other technically perfect pics is, I think, the spotted texture made by the daisy-like flowers in the background. It's really lovely!

Hello Horia,
This butterfly which seems to be very common in general, is quite seldom at the place I live. They are beautiful and interesting creatures! This is a very fine shot of this species posed an a lovely little daisy. Excellent sharpness and subtle colors, a pleasant shot.
Kind regards
