[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beauty is from Tarakli Kilickaya summit again! Yes, she was flying, wandering and then landing on a same vegetation, again and again! So I sat near the vegetation and kept waiting. Soon she came! Here is the shot! The vegetation was on the edge of the cliff! Btw you can see that one of the tails is lost, I don't know why!

I used flash for eliminating the backlit! If not, surely I don't use flash ;-))

If you want to see it's classic pose, you can check the ws!

Hi Ersin, nice shot with a great BG.
Super colors and details.

Looks like a huge kite soaring into the sky, Ersin.
Very unusual but beautiful POV!
I find this version of the butterfly more interesting.

Wonderful shot ! I love your unusual POV very much, the butterfly looks fantastic against the blue sky. Details, colors, composition are also very good. Well done !

Hello Ersin,
Are you do it on purpose, I mean making me write VERY WELL DONE all of the time? ;-)
This is another amazing shot from you. And of course this is because of this very nice low angle and blue sky in BG. I have a thing about such pictures!
The details are really good and so is the lighting. This time using flash is forgiven ;-)
I'm very glad you didn't post the classic view here. There's too many similar pictures of b'flies on TN. I'm very glad you're not walking the easy way and that you take such interesting and beautiful shot!
OK, I think that's enough as for now!!!
Love your last pictures. Keep them coming!

Hi Ersin,
Your POV is simple the best possible! The butterfly looks great!
Your note gives us a hint of how to take this shot.

Çok düşük bakış noktası ile etki güçlenmiş. Geriplan sadeliği ve renk uyumu da harika. Şahane bir fotoğraf. Kompozisyonlarınızda ve anlatımda sadelik gittikçe artıyor. Tebrikler
