great looking image, very nice use of light to give such excellent colouration and focus. The fast shutter speed has captured the details well.
A razor sharp image of this extremely attractive butterfly, Marius. I wonder how it would look with its wings open.
Superb details and colour tones on the wings and a lovely composition.

Another great macro. This time of a Cardinal. Superb sharpness, details and splendid colours. Taken from the best POV in a nice composition with a beautiful blurry background.
