Presento ancora una volta due immagini con le goccioline di rugiada per il nostro amico Goldy (Goldyrs), che in attesa di soddisfare la sua richiesta di un uccello acquatico deve accontentarsi di queste "farfalle acquatiche"

Hello Maurizio,
Fantastic photo of this butterfly in splendid colours, outstanding sharpness, details and composition. The water droplets are so beautiful, a big bonus. Great contrasting blurry BG and DOF. High quality!
Regards,
Peter

Hi Maurizio,

a wonderful portrait of the dewy Fritillary, Maurizio. The gradually darkening background is ingenious. The workshop example of your "Early morning" finds is so special and artistic, it deserved its own post on TN! My compliment!

Have a good day,
Dietrich

Hi Maurizio,
Two lovely dew filled capture of these beautiful butterflies. Superb sharp details and a lovely composition. A nice dedication for Goldy. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Maurizio,

This is too crisp, can almost feel it, bold & the beautiful, I liked the dew drops on the butterfly standing out against very good background, great colours. very well done.TFS.

Chandrashekar.

this is so stunning, Maurizio, that I'm at a loss for words!
Simply outstanding shot, my friend!
Cheers!

Ciao Maurizio, grazie all'amico Goldy che te l'ha chieste e a te che ce le mostri queste magnifiche decorazioni di goccioline, fantastica quella del WS, mi stai facendo venir voglia di alzarmi presto la mattina, ma da noi ora invece delle goccioline di rugiada ci son le gocciolone d'acqua, complimenti per questi due cappolavori, bravo, ciao Silvio

Ciao amico mio,

Very eye-pleasing image of a pretty frit. Nice use of the shallow DOF to focus in on the details.
The morning dew adds magic its beauty.
Nice job and nice dedication MF!
TFS and have a nice day!
Cheers,

Bayram

Ciao Maurizio. Molto accurata la composzione con dettaglio perfetto sulla farfalla e le gocce. Eccezionale la luce. Gradevole lo sfondo bicolor.

Ciao Maurizio,
ottimo lavoro per questa Melitaea direi che se lo merita questa bella e piccola farfalla, il POV è ideale per far risaltare la rugiada e la colorazione delle ali, complimenti!
...lo dico sempre anche io le prime ore della giornata son sempre le migliori.

Ciao

Hola Maurizio

Gracias nuevamente por tu inagotable paciencia con nosotros los que no tenemos casi idea.

Haceis unas macros fantasticas, como esta, con ese colorido, y esas gotas de rocio que cubren sus alas y antenas. Fantastica imagen.

Gracias nuevamente. Un saludo de Antonio.

Ad uno che si permette un WS con una pamphilus ricoperta di rugiada cosa si puo' dire? Io con quella foto ci avrei campato una settimana e tu la metti cosi' nascosta? Sei uno sprecone..ehhe..le foto non hanno bisogno di commenti,classe pura e complimenti per la sveglia mattutina.Buona serata,LUCIANO

Without the flash there would only be a mediocre image. With the flash come all the details. 100% on light!

Dear Maurizio!

The butterfly and its jewellery! This is so beautiful, dear Maurizio! The fine drops add to the value of the picture, they look like an ornament. Actually, the butterfly would be so beautiful even without the chain of pearls.

A technically perfect picture with a strong and pleasant impact.

Kind regards

Hi Maurizio,

I love all of your pictures but this one is super special. I am just waiting for this butterfly to fly off my monitor! The crispness and clarity of detail is outstanding - colors are vivid and rich - the shades of green in the background are beautiful - composition is sensational. And the droplets enhance it even more.

Jane

Technically very well done Maurizio, really like the dew drops that line the wing edge here..
Well done!!

Hello Maurizio,
A fine close macro of a resting M. phoebe taken with good use of a tripod to achieve the sharpness and DOF in this difficult lighting. The WS emphasised the lighting conditions on a resting C. pamphilus well.
The colours are great and the dew drops a little bonus in this beautiful composition with the contrasting BG.
Thanks and kind regards,
Ivan

Hellow Marizio,
Another amazing capture with excellent clarity and nice dew/ water drops on its antennae and wing tips.

Bonjour Maurizio,
Comme une vieille dame un peu fatiguée et arrosée par la pluie ta M. phoebe! Une image très parlante. La netteté à "couper le souffle" va nous donner des complexes! Excellent à tous points de vue, Maurizio.
Bravo!

Hello Maurizio,
an excellent capture that highlights the well patterned wings. Sharp and very well detailed, even the droplet on the feeler could be seen clearly.
Well shown and pleasant composition.

bonjour Maurizio
c'est une photo de très grande qualité, le Grand Damier est superbement capturé avec une excellente netteté contre un magnifique BG vert et noir,
les gouttelettes sur ces ailes ressemble a de petites perles
j'adore aussi la photo du WS
Passe une bonne nuit

Bellissimna foto Maurizio! La farfalla appare perfettamente nitida, con particolari incredibili!...le goccioline di rugiada, che abbelliscono la farfalla quasi come una collana di perle di cristallo,
sono fantastiche...con riflessi splendidi.
Soggetto perfettamente isolato contro lo sfondo scuro.
Un'altra bellezza.
Complimenti.
Ciao! Vanda
