Hello Silvio,
Splendid picture in great sharpness, details and beautiful clear colours. Excellent POV, DOF and composition.
Regards,
Peter

Ciao Silvio,
Nicely composed, nicely exposed, nice shot. :-) DoF and colors are fabulous, the grey-ish butterfly makes great contrast with the harsh yellow of the flower, they stand very well against each other. Personally I might crop more from the right and might clone the dust spot from above the wings, too - otherwise this pic meets your usual high level, so tfs.
Have a nice festive season, kind regards from the Emerald Isle, Lszl

Hello Silvio

You have choose a very fine POV with the 45 degree angle, it gives dynamism
to the image, very beautiful light, great focus, sharpness, details, and contrast, TFS

Ciao Silvio
This tiny butterfly is perfectly sharp, showing all its details.
Similar ones can be seen in my country too.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Hi Silvio,

The flowers is helping to frame the insect. The point of view is showing the details of the Leptotes pirithous butterfly. The light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
