Hello Peter,
Incredible image and perfect in all aspects of photography. I love the super fine detail and vivid yet natural coloration. The composition looks great and the blurred BG makes you stay focused on the Skippers. Great work!1

Very life-like, almost three dimensional capture of these mating Skippers, Peter. That's the kind of work we were used to seeing when TN was at the apex of it glory.
I'm delighted to see your work after a long time. It is heartening to see the stalwarts of the golden era of TN coming back with their work.
Welcome back and warm regards.

unlikely that both are in focus in these situations, but ultimately a good macro copula skipper...

hallo Peter
great sharpness and a beautiful composition with great details
thanks greeting lou

Ciao Peter. A great close up here! Good POV razor detaisl and sharp with best light.


Hello Peter,
This really is a beauty....Just amazing.....What a splendid image with exceptional details and outstanding sharpness. It is a lovely catch of a interesting butterfly specie with very good light and clarity. Incredible sharp details and perfect focus.
Thanks for sharing!
