Hello Mike,

Beautiful picture of this butterfly. Good focus. Beautiful natural colours.

Hi Mike,
I guess this one is more bright because it is freshly emerged. Nymphalids generally live quite long lives as adults and therefore often get faded and chipped. Good POV and very sharp, but with a somewhat distracting background. Good colours and framing. Thanks

hello Mike,
A very beautiful and fresh specimen of the Soldier Commodore. It's very nice to have also African species taken in the wild, shown on TN. Thanks a lot for it.
Best regards

Hello Mike,
Thanks for looking at my recent butterfly picture and writing your kind critique on it.

This is a great capture of a beautiful butterfly from Ghana I have seen for the first time on TN.
Superb point of view, sharp focus and delightful colours.
TFS and regards.

Ciao Mike,
splendidi i colori di questa Junonia.
Conosco poco le farfalle del tuo paese e spero perciņ che tu abbia molte altre specie da mostrarci.
