Hello Goldy,
what an attractive colour contrast. The white against green render a good composition. The green hazy background presents a pleasant and captivating view.
nicely done.

Bonita especie con fieles colores. Creo que el ángulo de disparo
es demasiado forzado desde la parte trasera.

Hello Goldy,
You use a fine camera with great skill to achieve this macro without any PP work except the cropping.
The technical standard, POV and composition against a fine OOF natural BG contribute to another excellent portrait of the Hedge Blue.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Goldy.
well close-up photo. composition, point of view, depth of field,colours,focus, sharpness and details are great.Best regards Siggi

Hello MF Goldy,
I like very well the soft colours of this composition. Impressive sharpness too. Well done! Cheers,

Hey Goldy...as I told Silvio a year ago, try ISO 800 and you'll see a big difference...otherwise a great art-form image with its Goldy unique softness.

Hola Goldy

Bonita composición de esta preciosa mariposa, buena nitidez y contrastes, perfecto POV.

PD. Parece que esta mariposa esta esperando a que la flor se abra y asi poder libar antes que otras.

Un saludo de Antonio

Bonjour Gooldy,
D'abord un grand merci de tes gentilles mots sur ma 500ème image. Je suis très touchée.
J'avais raté cette image d'un Lycanidae asiatique que tu as si bien présenté sur cett image. Bon cadrage et couleurs naturelles. Un grand mecri.
Bonne fin de semaine

Hi Goldy,
well composed image with very pleasant subtle colours in favourable soft backlight, presenting a tiny blue in touching fragility. Beauiful image, thank you!
With best regards,

Hi Goldy. I think the butterfly color is wonderful against the buttery smooth background. It is in good harmony and pleasing to my eyes. Excellent focus and details with framing that is so in balance. Well done and have a great week ahead. Best regards - Jusni.
