one of your best, that i liked best. colors are perfect and wonderful/magical depth (f2.8) that i like always. tfs.

Hello Foozi,
you have captured a very beautiful butterfly.
The head is sharp but the DOF is a bit shallow for the rest of the butterfly because of F2.8, maybe 400 ISO had improved the picture. Nice and natural colours.
Well done.

hello Foozi
this is a great one
super details and colours
greeting lou

Ya Foozi,
Well captured nice frame but it looks low light by aperture and shutter speed hence it is crisp sharp with low DOF.

Hi, Foozi,

what a beautiful butterfly you have captured. I like the colours and the overall atmosphere of this photo a lot. thanks for sharing.
