It looks like a beautifully crafted jewel to me, Osse, my friend. Brooches at one time, when they used to be in fashion, were sometimes designed like butterflies; this specimen of a Common blue would have been an ideal model to emulate!
Beautiful POV that facilitates a full, open-wing view of the butterfly. The delicate colours and designs on the wings are very well recorded here.
The cropping with vast empty space at the bottom half of the frame makes it a grand composition.
Love it!

Hej Osse,
Wonderful capture of this female - the sharpness and the colours are really brilliant and it stands out from the beautiful background showing the host plant, Birdsfoot Trefoil. (Käringtand) Thanks for a glimpse of summer!
TFS, Ulla

Hi Ozcan,
This is a marvellous capture of a really beautiful butterfly. The PoV and DoF work perfectly to give us excellent detail on the whole butterfly. The composition also works great, too, giving dynamic to the photo: you feel like the butterfly is going to dive any moment now :-)

Hej Osse,
The silky soft but still crisp textures are quite amazing, details in the butterfly also!
Wonderful colours and I find the composition to be very well done!
Pablo -

Really nice composed and presented, Ozcan!
Details and colours are amazing.

Selam Ozcan,

Hi Osse

What a splendid picture! This one is really great!
I really like the high and vertical POV here and also the composition!
The colors and tones everywhere look fantastic and the details are razor-sharp.
Very good management of the exposure and very nice framing, too.
Bravo and TFS

Denna bild är otroligt fin, Osse!
I like the way you present this upside-down female Common Blue by having a long BG below her. The butterfly itself is super sharp.
Well done mf,
Hälsningar, Ivan

Hoppas du inte har drabbats direkt av översvämningarna på ditt område.

Hello Ozcan,
Excellent close up of common blue.Well caught,framed and composed.POV,BG,colors are also ewonderful.
TFS mf..:-)

Hello Ozcan,
It's so artistic your presentation here!
I like a lot the overall color harmony.
The POV gets the better from the butterfly, details and colors.
And the DOF makes such a smooth transition to the background...very pleasant to look at.
The composition is a very uncommon one, at first sight I'll try to figure out how will it looks like upwards, but then really enjoys this one.
I like a lot also the presentation, the frame with the tiny yellow line.
Congratulations and thanks for share,

This is gorgeous Ozcan. The only thing that bothers me a little is the very black heavy frame. It feels a little too strong for the image....but that is probably just to me.
