Hello Luciano.
Awesome shot of this butterfly. Such superb colours and sharp details. Unusual POV and a fine BG. Amazing eyes it has. Very nicely composed.Best regards Siggi

Ciao Luciano. Sfruttata al meglio la bella luce autunnale. Dettaglio assolutamente perfetto con colori brillanti e realistici. anche tu hai detto addio a quell'arancio strano che, avolte, ci opprimeva..... La prima tua Phoebe??!!! Sembrerebbe impossibile. In alcuni periodi qui ce ne sono a centinaia.

Hi Luciano,

A first for me too - on account of the pose - given the spread eagle underside of the butterfly. Nicely focused (considering the flower) and exposed (seemingly backlit situation). Tfs,

Subhayan.

Bonjour Luciano,
Je m'aperçois que j'ai oublié cette belle image de M. phoebe. Un très joli face à face avec le photographe. Magnifiques la transparence des ailes et bien sûr les yeux bleus de la dame..
Bine vu et présenté
Amitiés
Anne
