Hi Milos. Congratulations on the 100 pictures. this is a very nice one too. great detail in the butterfy and flower. you have captured the markings so well. sharp focusing. and a nice POV. very well done TFS.
Look foward to the next 100

Hello Milos,
very picturesque presentation of Goneptery rhamni on Lathyrus. The colour contrast between butterfly and blossom looks delicious, and so do the fine structures on the butterfly's wings and body in the wonderful clear, well shaping light that is coming from the side.
With thanks, and my best regards from a place not far from the centrepiece of Europe,

My congratulations to your posting #100, and one year here on TN - what a perfect timing! Looking forward to more to come from you.

Congratulations with your 100th and one year on TN.
Has been and still is a great pleasure for me to take a look at your very beautiful images wich always are technically perfect.
This one is no exception to that.
Composition, sharpness, DOF and lighting are awsome and the details in the wing of the Brimstone, colors and color contrast are very beautiful.
Excelent work again.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards,

Hi Milos,
A hearty congratulations to my dear friend in the heart of Europe. You paced yourself very well to post #100 on your one year anniversary. And, it is an outstanding photo very worthy of this milestone.
The colors, exposure, and details are stunning. The colors are bright and vivid with no hotspots and the light was just right to bring out the most detail on the wings. The composition is very pleasing with just the right amount of empty space on all sides of butterfly. A pleasing blurred background and wonderful note.
Best Regards,
