Hi Sergio,
Nicely composed, clear shot, albeit I feel a bit of cyan overcast and the b-fly could be a touch sharper also.
Best regards, László

Hallo Sergio
This is a beautiful creature. You have taken a very good picture here. I like the soft colours, not only of the butterfly but of the background too. The clarity of the stripes on the antennas and paws are great. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Sergio,

Regards Jiri.

What an amazing photo, there is nothing about this I dont like, beautiful details, colors and composition, bravo.

Hello Sergio,

Hope you are well. This perhaps the fifth or sixth time that you are my neighbour here and I have so for not commented on your photos, I am sorry and I apologize for the seemingly neglectful attitude. In fact, I am busy that's why I often fail to comment but today I did not want to miss this rare opportunity so here I am dear friend.
This is one hell of a super shot in my view, I do not go for technicalities rather favour the overall beauty of the shot, for the purpose is to share a rare moment with friends here. The BG is amazing and more than that the beautiful butterfly with all its amazing colours.
Thanks a lot for sharing, take care,

warm regards,



Very well composed pic showing excellent sharpness, clarity, DOF, OOF BG, lighting and POV.

hallo Sergio
