Hi Aleksander

Superb close up shot, the detail is very good, especially the flower that is sharp in the center then blurs towards the edges, the colours are lovely and I like the iridescence
on the wings.

Regards Hilary

I like very much this macro. The colors are nice. The shallow DOF gives a good effect. Well seen and well done Aleksander.
