Himy beloved friend Silvio,
What a perfectly focused beautiful Grayling resembling H. cypriensis Which I uploaded a few days ago. Great details and composition. I also liked the BG too.
Many thanks for sharing this beauty.

Hi Silvio, superb close-up of this camouflaged butterfly with great clarity. TFS.
I like this photo. Great OOF background, good sharpness and very nice composition and tight crop. I also like the fild guide POV.
The only problem is exposure. It is overexposed on light parts I did the workshop

Um belo exemplo de camuflagem... parece mesmo a extenção do tronco!
Excelente nitidez, proporcionando incríveis detalhes.
BG perfeito também.
Parabéns por mais uma belíssimo registro de muita qualidade!

A very good example of mimetism in animal world.The colors are almost the same, in both, butterfly and bark. TFS

An amazing example of cammouflage. The Grayling has the identical colors as the tree. Wonderful details, good colors and shadings. The green background sets it off perfectly.

A fine close portrait of H, fagi contrasting well with the BG and taken from an excellent POV. Krzysz WS makes it even better.
TFS and have a nice weekend,

Hi Silvio. This is first class work. The detaail is spot on with sharp focusing. Such natural colours it merges with the tree bark so well. Stands out well from the BG. TFS.
Have a nice weekend.

Very detailed macro, Silvio!
The parallel POV has made the most of the DOF.
Great frame-filling composition.

Outstanding shot of this great looking butterfly perfectly camouflaged against the bark. Immaculate sharpness and details and it stands out well against the dark BG. Superb handling of lighting and exposure levels. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Thanks for sharing this fine image.

You have done a fine composiion with this photograph, using almost a diagonal to include the moth, its perch and the b/g.
The details of the marking on the Grayling's wings, shows clearly how it is well adapted to its environment! A fine shot!

Isn't it strange that they know where to settle to be completely camouflaged! This is a very nice illustration of the wing pattern matching the bark of the tree. Great sharpness, good light and colours and a fine green background to make it stand out. Well done!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

This one snuck by me..and my guess is by his disguise in dress...he gets by many a peoples unless he runs upon Mario..the man with camera in one hand and an empty glass in the other...no alms for you though..just a bit of juice right? could be aged as well...just fine..as this image is..

Tout simplement magnifique! Un papillon d'une grande discrétion, mais rendu magnifiquement attractif par cette photo. (je vois que tu as réglé sur 800 Iso). Bravo!
