Ciao George, great macro of lovely little butterfly on beautiful blue sky, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello George!
Superb composition feauturing this lovely butterfly against a beautiful blue sky as BG. Great sharpness and details. The little play of light on edges of butterfly's feathers is beautiful and a diagonal framing is a plus too. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

Hi George,
Good to see your return to the site. Gorgeous macro shot with incredible sharpness and color tones. I'm amazed how beautiful bokeh is created by your lens. Like bubbles! Excellent effect. Personally, I'd crop just a little more from right and the bottom to off-center the b-fly a little more, but this is just a different idea, the original image is exceptional itself. Bravo!
Best regards, László

Hi George
Nice Pierrot.
The BG is fantastic.

Brilliant capture. Very nice image. I like this interesting scene with this lovely specie of butterfly. The colors and contrast of this image are excellent.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi George,
this is a classic composition wiht a small diagonal, nice to view.
Also a good use of the fill-in flash. Accurate WB and excellent exposure.
The sharp insect stand out fine against the blu sky.
Well done, MF.
