[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Silvio Sorcini is one of those photographers who has taught me how to improve my macros. This he did through his work, of course, and also his constant words of encouragement and through gentle suggestions.
One of the best photographers, this gentleman is also a wonderful teacher to most of us who have been on TN.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful journey with us, my friend!

I captured this one on my portico floor. My last post of this species can be found here.Incidentally, that,too, was dedicated to Silvio.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Goldy,
real beauty of a brown butterfly with the similar background. The composition gives a lovely image and the shine is so exciting and lively.
Well presented.


Hello Goldy,

I notice the different and interesting background for the insect!
The background colour enhances the beauty of the insect so well, and the silky-crisp texture of the wings are very well captured...
