Hello Pawel,
You can't get any finer then this awesome image. I love the fact that you were able to capture two insects in such fine detail at once. The flower is very attractive also and shown in super sharp focus. A gorgeous butterfly which has been presented in a top quality image. Great work!!

Hi Pawel.
Both flower and butterfly are widespread in our region. You managed to picture both of them together at a nice moment. I am impressed with wide DOF and details of every petal of the flower and every feature of the butterfly. BG is refined too, is looked naturally and nicely smoothed. Nice job. TFS and bets regards.
