Hi Nikos,

Superb macro capture of my favorite butterfly, The Painted Lady, the Great :) with superb details!
The dark green BG works well for this kind of capture. The sharpness and POV are perfect. The dOF is very well chosen. The thorax part of the butterfly is very well shown.
Very well done, my friend!

best regards,

Giasou and Kalimera file Nikos,

An amazingly beautiful macro capture of this beautiful lady from top POV with excellent clarity, warm saturated colours and delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice Sunday MF!

Hello Nikos,
Good shot, nice dark BG, vivid colours and exact sharp the butterfly.
Regards, Pawel

Hope you'll be fine. This is a marvellous photo. You are lucky to have so many of them around this year. The thistle the butterfly is sitting on has also added a lot to the scene and the shot....thanks...warmest regards/Abid

Hello Nikos,
Fantastic photo of this butterfly, taken from a very good POV with the dark BG and open wings. Very beautiful natural colours. The thistles as an accent give the photo something special. Excellent sharpness, details and composition.

Excellent macro. Wonderful details and colors also great sharpness.


Buen equilibrio del conjunto y encuadrado todo él con habilidad por el fondo y la base. Quizás algo falta de nitidez en el centro pero poca cosa para la belleza del conjunto.
Saludos Nikos: Josep Ignasi.
