hallo Achim,
Irgendwie finde ich diese Bild rührend, ich kann nicht sagen warum. Ich habe danach gesehen, dass Du es in den Killing Fields in Phnom Penh aufgenommen hast. Es scheint mir wie eine leichte Seele auf wunderschönen Blumen..welch ein Kontrast zur Geschichte.
Liebe Grüsse

Hello Achim,
Beautiful captuire of the pretty little butterfly on the Bougainvillea flowers. Even though small it stands out very nice against the bright red flowers. Great sharpness of butterfly and flowers too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

The butterfly you have captured here is beautiful to look at.
I wish you had gone closer to get a macro of it.
Still, the unique colors on the the subject are clearly discernible.

Hello Achim

It is a beautiful little butterfly and looks amazing against the floral colours.
The lighting is wonderful with vivid colours.
Lovely focus and sharpness.

A colourful presentation of this place that most people don't associate with the opposite of life...
Sharp fine details and an attractice colour palette...
Well framed presentation!

Hi John,
Splendid shot of this elegant butterfly among those charming red bouganvillia flowers. Very impressive sharpness and colours with perfect lighting. I like this top POV and the superb composition. kudos.

Hi Achim,

The point of view leads our eyes toward the red flowers and to the butterfly which is working on the flower. The details are clear and precise. The subject is well framed. The light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.
