Hi Peter,
beautiful details and colors of this opened wing phleas, lovely composition, good light !
Thanks !

Hi Peter,
Beautiful photo, great details on the wings. You had quite difficult conditions with dark toned insect and white flowers combination, but you solved the problem quite well, with only minor detail loss on the bright parts. Top notch sharpness and optimal DoF beside the pleasant composition. Congrats and tfs.
Have a great festive season, best regards, László
