Hello Jiri,
I just return from a short holiday at the Black See and in Bucegi Mountains - Romania.
You managed perfect this macro image with a wonderful specie of butterfly living also in my region. Outstanding clarity, focus and details.
Thanks for sharing!


What a beat-up old nymphalid. A little noisy, but great focus on the subject. We can't always get the foreground obstacles out of the picture. TFS.
