It's a beauty, Jaap.
Never seen this before.
Well composed, good POV and good details.
Very well done, my friend.
The butterflies are on return now, but only peacock so far.

Excellent detail and sharpness Jaap, the DOF is spot on, as is the exposure.

This is beautiful Jaap!
I especially like the platform on which this butterfly rests. Very delicate and artistic in its nature.
Wonderful details, color, and POV.

This long tongue is so interesting.

Beautifull butterfly, I think that there was a place for more DOF in this frame, very good colours.

Gorgeous yellow color, Jaap. I haven't seen such a vibrant yellow on a butterfly. The flower perch gives it a very nice composition. Beautifully done! :-) Thanks for sharing.

Jaap, 1/50 and the picture is still sharp?!
Congratulations. My hands are not that steady.
Excellent sharpness, great use of dof - the focus is in the head/eye.
I also the bg too.

Is this the one who needs to marry the blue to get the greens?

Hello Jaap, nice shot. I've not seen this one before and well done for capturing a rare migrant. The shot is very nice, well done on the exposure I wish for a little more DOF but light was not on your side.
Hi MF Jaap, I have no time to write a decent comment. I give to you the well deserved smiley. Excellent shot. Great composition and sharpness. Taken with the 500D?

Mooie foto Jaap.
Ik heb deze gele nog niet gezien in de kas van Blijdorp.
Vind het een prachtige vlinder.
Staat ook fraai op de foto en in zijn roltong nog net een druppeltje te zien.

What a great detail on the head and eyes Jaap, beautifull subtle colours and nice use of the aperture to control the out of focus parts in the photo. An 8 star photo and my 2 greenies are well deserved!
