I really like this shot. The way the background is slightly blurred and everything in front of the log is in perfect focus. Interesting and unique critter! TFS!

What an interesting butterfly species! I like especially its head - very unusual shape :)
DOF and POV are very good, also sharpness and details. And - as always, note is very informative.

Excellent lighting and colours. Shots of butterflies on the ground are always difficult because the background is right there and will not go away. However, the stick it is standing on is very sharp and anchors the composition, while the rest of the butterfly is detailed enough to keep our attention. The colours show little contrast, which underlines your point in the notes about camouflage. The dead leaf out of focus behind the snout is both annoying in that it prevents a clear outline of the head, but it is valuable because it breaks up the outline and makes the camouflage point yet again. Lastly, an interesting insect I have never seen in the flesh, so thanks.

This is a strange looking butterfly and well adapted for survival. Your shot is sharp and well exposed. POV and composition are great. Also enjoy reading your informative note.

Fine capture of L. celtis from Greece showing a sharp close view of the underside in a nice composition against a gravel BG.
A good one from your archives!

Effectivement un papillon à la forme étrange que je n'ai encore malheureusement jamais vu. Le monde et sa biodiversité, c'est quand même formidable. Essayons de la protéger.
Merci aussi pour la notice très informative. Bonne journée

thanks to you I finally get to see a Libythea. You did a wonderful portrait of it. It looks quite mysterious this way. The picture conveys the extreme cryptic body shape and coloration very well. You did a fine piece of work, Marcello.
My best regards,

How curious and funny this butterfly with that long nose! Splendid sharpness with crips details and fantastic POV, DOF and composition.
