Hello Alina !
You don't want points, so I don't give you, but you want an opinion and this I can give you - I truly like this shot. Maybe it is not perfect, as some parts of the wings are out of focus and blurred, but there are many other points to make up fo this. I specially like the natural colors and the vertical composition, with the buttefly sitting on top of a nicely curved strand of grass. The details on the face - the most important part - are excellent, too. Very well done !

Hi Alina.
I like composition of a picture and pictured scene a lot. Inclined leaf and beautiful small butterfly on it are looked perfectly. Colorfulness and smoothness of the BG as well as excellent sharpness of the main subject are amazing. Best wishes and TFS.

hi Alina

nice butterfly and capture.
I like the colors of this pretty insect and the green BG
good sharpness and POV



Hello Alina,
Nice picture of a species I have not seen in real life, so thankyou for posting it. I noted the comments by Valerie, so have made a workshop to touch the image up a little, and to remove some slight noise from the background.
Another thing. In my copy of Higgins & Riley, Butterflies of Britain and Europe, this species is listed as Everes argiades, so in a different genus. Best wishes.

Niepozorne, ale piękne i bardzo ruchliwe motylki. Maluchy, które skutecznie ubarwiaj± nasze ł±ki. Piękny!

Hi Alina
Nice capture.
Great details ad good clarity.

Bardzo lubie tego modraszka, na Twoim zdjeciu podoba mi sie rowniez :-) Bardzo ladne tlo w roznych odcieniach zieleni, ktore swietnie gra z kolorem samego motyla. DOF prawie bez zastrzezen, z wyjatkiem tego jednego nieostrego fragmentu skrzydla - ale to detal :-)
