Hi Goldys, today we are neighbour:), splendid butterfly on a lovely flower with great details and excellent sharpness, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

It is a survivor from the last year, Goldy, and it is some butterfly from the Blues family, going by the colouring of its head and antennae.
Good POV that shows a tinge on blue on the junction of its outer wings.
Never mind the battered wings; it is stll nature.
Well done and TFS.

Well defined as an image by and from Goldy!;-) Genuine in your own special way...which I have yet to figure out!

Hello Goldy. Still graceful maybe towards the end of its life. Stunning shot with well framed perspective. Pleasant sharpness and color. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Hi Goldy,

A very pretty picture showing this butterfly in his/her golden years. It is posing nicely on the flower. Good colors and details. I like the background of stems and leaves.


Hi Goldy,
Good comp, detail, DOF, and an interesting POV.
Your BG is nicely defocused also. Perhaps a bit OE, not much though.
Well done & Have a Great Weekend!
