This tiny fellow looks like a Topaz blue to me, but I am not 100% sure about that, so if you know please let me know :)

The perch looks more beautiful than, well, lovely butterfly...fine composition with interesting background..tfs.

Hello George,
Impressive capture of a very nice butterfly. Excellent clarity and colors. It is a interesting image taken from a very nice and low POV and with exceptional light. The details and sharpness are great.
Thanks for sharing!

Una foto preciosa con unos colores y tonos muy buenos y un fondo genial. Enhorabuena.

Splendid lights and great, colorful details, perfect photo of this Butterfly!

Hi George,

Lovely catch of the blue over a dry flower. Nice perch. The BG is great. ID-wise, I feel it may be a Tiny Grass Blue. But then again - it's just a feel. Thanks for sharing.

Hi George
main subject perfect as usual with very nice bg

Hello George
Wonderful composition and capture.Very elegant with splendide soft colors,artistic BG,soft light,sharp details.Very beautiful..
Have a nice day.


Excellent POV and DOF. The contrast between the subject and the BG is superb. Clear BG, sharpness, detail and composition all well done.

Hi George,
A Beautiful capture. Splendid detail, light, contrast, colours and POV.
Intriguing BG.
Best regards,

What a jewel of a capture; life on death...wherever it landed, presence birthed hope..yet again :0)

Hello George,
The first thing that caught my eye on this image was the awesome diagonal backlighting. Looks like sun rays captured at just the right angle and intensity to really enhance the subject.
The butterfly is shown in exceptional detail and beautiful colors, but the dried out seed pod is also an amazing element in the photo. Lighting is everything and your photo is a great example of that fact. Love the morning light as it gives the image a soft warm look and works well in this instance. Great job!!
Hope you don't mind, but just had to try a WS.
