You deserve praise for capturing this beautiful butterfly so very adroitly, Maurizio.
I'm glad Peacock has started appearing in your part of the world this early.
The image is exceptionally sharp and colourful. I wish I too could handle my D200 with same efficacy!

Hello Maurizio !
You're so lucky to have butterflies already - here in the north of France everything still looks like winter, there are only some very tiny signs of spring. I really like the cheerful colors of this picture, on the butterfly and on the flower, but sharpness, details, composition, POV, blurred BG and pose of the butterfly are wonderful, too. A real pleasure for the eye. Very well done !

No matter how many times we have seen this Peacock on the site, it just remains one of the most spectacular butterflies I have seen. Your camerawork has just once again proofed it. The colours and patterns on the wings of the butterfly is beautiful, and it is diplayed so well the way you captured it with the sunlight shining on it. The yellow flower highlights the strong colours of the butterfly and brings out the beauty to its best. Great focus, sharpness and excellent composition. This image reminds me of summer.Thanks for sharing.

This butterfly picture is superb. I like the refreshing colours very much and the point of view you have chosen offers a perfect view on all the parts of the insect. From my point of view, the background is a little bit vivid. I appreciate the detailed notes very much.

A fine capture of a fresh-looking Peacock butterfly on a dandelion flower, a springtime capture that we would have in a month's time!
The POV, sharpness and composition are excellent and this image makes me look forward to spring!
Thanks and have a good weekend,

ottima definizione dei colori a fronte del verde sottofondo e bella presa ad ali aperte
per il pavone di giorno,senza dubbio una delle specie,che svernando,si presenta annunciando la fine dell'inverno.
oggi ho visto una vanessa c in buono stato che postero' nei prossimi giorni

Hola Maurizio, una de las Inachi más nítidas que he visto últimamente; es increible la dificultad que tiene esta mariposa para ser bien captada , pero has resuelto estas cuestiones técnicas de manera excelente.
Saludos Maurizio: Josep Ignasi

As I wrote to 'siggi' and 'lousat' a couple of hours ago, today I have a "peacock day", I comment a lot of photos dealing with this wonderful specie... :) There isn't me who says first this is a stunning pic, a wonderful composition with well balanced and saturated colors, with perfect details, sharpness and blurry background. As I see, spring already reached Italy - also reached Hungary, at least there's already spring in the city, but still winter in the mountains with big amount of snow, although our mountains aren't taller than 1000 meters above sea level.
Tfs this wonderful photo, I can't wait to see this beautiful butterfly (and the others also) again. Have a nice weekend, have a nice spring, respectfully Yours, László
