greeting lou

Hello Foozi, perfect shot of this butterfly with great details and light.
TFS and warm regards,

Hi Foozi,
Butterfly shots are a lot harder than people think.
I've only ever taken a couple,but then,we don't have very many butterflies here in NZ.
I think we have a similar one to this.
I must try and find one and see if I can shoot it too.
Cheers & TFS

Hi Foozi.
Nice composition created by impressive leaf and attractive butterfly. I like magnification ratio and plenty fine details of the insect. Lights and colour palette of the shot are also very impressive. My best wishes and kind regards.

Hi Foozi,

This is a very beautiful shot. The butterfly's body texture is very unique.

TFS, Sreya
