Hello Goldy,

Another very nice photo from an beautiful butterfly with low pov.
good of sharpness, fine colours and great details.
fine colours.


We get a glimpse of the lower wing too in this picture of the Baron lounging on the ground, Goldy.
I wonder whether it is the slightly greenish tongue of the butterfly hanging out of its face. It could be a tiny blade of grass too, no?
Very good details and colours on the wings.

Namastay L'il bro Goldy,

Muhteşem ve kusursuz bir makro. Yüksek kalitede bir görüntü olmuş. Tebrikler. Ellerine sağlık. Selam ve sevgiler.


Spot on sharp Goldy. A big difference in this view of the Mormon. And to boot you have used the sun to its fullest although use is not angle...the angle of the sun gives it some drama.

Hello Goldy,
A very good macro shot of this beauty in great colors with excellent sharpness and details.TFS.

Hola Goldy

Una imagen sumamente bella, con una composición muy agradable, de esta mariposa recogiendo minerales del suelo. Perfecta nitidez. Y pos supuesto un punto de vista fantastico.

Un saludo de Antonio

Preciosa y rara especie que poco podemos admirar por Tn. Difícil ángulo
sde disparo pero aún así muy bien captada.
Un saludo y buena semana Goldy: Josep Ignasi.

A fine macro-study and an excellent composition in pastel browns Goldy, the DOF encloses the whole b.fly and nothing else! I wonder why the BG between the legs is not in focus since it happens to be within the DOF zone...

Hello Goldy,
Fantastic shot of this beautiful butterfly. I have never seen one with a green tongue before. Excellent detail and gorgeous wing patterns and colors Well done!!

Hi Goldy,

The insect is well placed in the frame. The close-up point of view is showing the details and colors of the Common Baron butterfly. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
