Hello everybody - and a special hello to Heinz (wallhalla15) - I saw the first Glasswing in my life on his wonderful shots.

Now I'm proud also to present this phascinating butterfly.

First I never thought that it was so tiny, only about 55 - 58 mm wingspan.
When it is flying, you only notice the white stripes in the air. And at least, it sit down - than you see the complete beauty of this glass-wings.
Such a wonderful butterfly, I hope you also like it.

A lovely, translucent and fascinating ;) little butterfly. Excellent sharpness and DOF, with just a little highlight burn from the flash. A very nice image.
Thanks, Nigel.

Hi Sabine...
Another perfect capture of a most interesting creature!
You do it so well with the most admirable colours & details... You even manage to compose your shot with great skill...
Pablo -

Incredible shot-so well composed and such beautiful detail. I can feel the texture of the leaf that the butterfly is resting on and I'm almost afraid to look at the picture because you've picked up how delicate the wings are-magnificent!

Hi Sabine,
Beautiful butterfly and very well captured,
very nice colours and excellent composition.
Thanks for sharing!

Hallo Sabine,
ich bin untröstlich - bin verdammt spät dran heute.
Danke Dir für diesen Leckerbissen. Der Glaswing sieht mit Blitz viel plastischer aus. Einfacher super! Da hat sich Deine Visite wirklich gelohnt. Technisch gibt es bei Deinen Fotos schon lange nichts mehr zu bemäkeln. Deine Qualitätsansprüche sind sehr hoch. - Ich war heute im Dortmunder Zoo und habe an meiner HP weiter gewerkelt. Sie steht jetzt bis auf das Gästebuch - da habe ich noch Probleme.
Gruß und nochmals vielen Dank für diesen wunderbaren Glaswing.

Hallo Sabine,
pantastisceh Regenbogenfarben in den Fenstern dieses faszinierend zarten Tropenfalters.
Wunderbar tiefe, gesättigte Farben und klare Detailwiedergabe.
Die Freude, die Du bei diesem Foto empfunden haben magst, ist sehr zu spüren und steckt an!
Danke für den schönen Beitrag.
Liebe Grüße,

hi sabine
ce papillon la est tres beau aussi.
ses ailes transparentes me font penser aux voile que j'utilise pour faire de la planche a voile.
bravo pour les couleurs et les details.

Hi Sabine,
Super photo! DOF,BG marvellous and composition and colours are great!
Thanks for sharing.

Very impressive capture of this beauty Wishnu, very well done.

Hi Sabine

A great shot that is well composed, with good clarity, depth of colour and sharpness. Detail is spot on. A big tick for this shot! :-)

Hallo Sabine,
diese durchsichtigen Fluegel fasziniert mich iimmer wieder und du hast das auch gekonnt dargestellt. Wunderbares DOF und klasse Freistellung vom HG. Eine ganz tolle bildgestaltung.

Incredible butterfly in this shot Wishnu.
Great colors and superb details.
The composition is perfect as it is the POV and the BG.

Wow, Wonderful shot of this glasswing Sabine!
Very well done. Thank You!!

Hi Wishnu,
What a beauty. I think God created beauties like this to be seen. Its one of the most beautiful pictures of this species i have seen. Good in everything. Great!

An unusual butterfly, which you have shot very well, Sabine.

So beautiful!
Looks like wings of glass made!
Excellent sharpness and details!
Very good POV!
Perfect DOF!
5* and TFS!

Hello Sabine,
Very good shot! The wings look amazing and I have feeling that they, not the whole butterfly are the main subject of the photo. Somehow my eyes are drawn to the wings. Picture has good POV and framing, great colours too.

Hi Sabine
I really don't like to be a late comer and end up at the bottom of such a long list, but since I have to give the credit where it belongs, I have to give this smiley and congratulate you on a magnificent capture.
The composition is stunning and the colours are just amazing. The DOF is on a knifes-edge with zillions on detail. The BG is perfect and that one leaf showing behind the butterfly is so strategic to show the transparency of the wings. The exposure was perfectly managed.
Excellent work and TFS.

Wow Wishnu that's very rare butterfly and very beautiful. I'm under his impression of beautiful.
Very good job

Hello Wishnu

I just, just can`t say anything, such a fantastic shot, perfect. you have amazing gallery az well. let me just watch and say nothing about technical works. I`m still student.
well done


Great shot Wishnu!!! good detail and colors, its not easy too photograph because the wings tend too reflect the flash light ruin the shot!!! well done!

beayutiful bfly image,transparent wings are superb

Very nice capture of this incredible butterfly demonstrating its ability to blend in the best with its clear wings using the jungle for it's camouflage. :)
