Hello Koray,
Great shot!
The cxolours here are very beautiful, picture has also very good quality. I like the POV and framing too.

Hi Koray, great macro!
Colors, details and compo overall are great.
Good BG, too.

Hi Koray,
very pretty, colourful and dynamic picture of the "Scarce Swallowtail" (Iphiclides podalirius L.)., taken in a very pleasant light.
Slightly cropping the left border to neutralize the background might add to final perfection.
Image looks very good! Thanks, and best regards,
