Hi Seyfi,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Eastern Wood White butterfly. The late afternoon light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Beautiful image of this lovely White on white flower, good composition.tfs.

Ciao Seyfi. TFS this specie that I never seen. Very good details and sharp with beuatiful colours.


Hi Seyfi,
excellent composition, very pleasant colours, pleasantly soft light! Both the butterfly and the daisy flower might have profitted by a wider depth of field, but to go for a good isolation from a pleasantly soft and distant background is also a good decision, for sure.
With thanks, and best regards,
