I'm really tired of butterflies this year, I'm sure you're also :-) This will be last from butterflies' pictures... for some time. Too many colours, too sweet, too boring :-) Tomorrow we'll go with Kaszek to another trip to our neighbourhood. I'll try to avoid butterflies and take pictures something different. On Sunday I'll go to Zelow. I hope it'll be fruitfull harvest on big meadows and forest! So, another butterfly today. I bet everyone read about this specie thousand times :-)

I wish you all great weekend!

Hi Greg !
This one is as beautiful as a swallowtail ! And you have captured perfectly, with excellent details, colors, composition, POV and BG. Whatever you'll bring back from your trip to meadows and forests, I'm sure it will be great. Very well done !

What, are you after some DUCKS now, Greg?
Your Peacock is beautiful though, with nice bright colors! Good composition and details too. I do like it,

Rob zdjecia motylom dopoki sa. Pozniej bedziesz tesknil ;)
Tutaj wyglada jakby slonce nad nim zachodzilo. Czesciowo tylko oswietlony. Superowe!

Who can be bored with such lovely butterflies, Greg?
Superb image as usual from you.
I am sure you will come up with something interesting during your trip. All the best.

Hi Greg,

I have been away for a while, but here I am again! :)
This is stunning photo! The colors are marvelous and the focus is razorsharp. TFS!


Hello my friend, I wish you a great weekend too. You are tired - I think I can understand you. But what you will picture? Landscapes - okay. Poland is fantastic beautiful country. You can picture wild flowers or other insects. In Poland lives very interesting mammals in the wild. (Wisent, Tarpan, Deer, Canis lupus.) But it´s very, very difficult to picture it. - Also I picutred all the nature, that come "through my lens." (butterflies too ;-))
Your picture is as usual great Greg. Excellent POV, wonderful colours, lighting and great sharpness too. You are a master with your S2-IS. This is an excellent composition. Thank you for posting and greetings to you and your wife.

Fabulous macro work. Great details and colour.
If you want to try something else you could always look to the far landscape photos.

Hello greg, excllent colors, bg, POv Dof Perfect details, very crisp, perfect POV and framing, TFs Kyle

Hello Grzegorz,

What a splendid picture here!!! It is the butterfly that I saw when I was very young in the image books (before I learn to read). Fabulous natural colors and the nice green blurry bg compliments so well the insect! Details are awesome too and you managed excellently the exposure! Great job and TFS,

Ahoj Greg. Very nice picture of the common but beautiful butterfly. I like POV, details and colors.

Hi Greg,
to many butterflies, bla, bla ;-))
I agree, sometimes it can be to much of the good things.
Thw peacock looks funny but nice, 1/2 shadow and 1/2 sunny.
Well composed, good details and lovely colours.
Great work, mf.

Bonjour Grzegorz,
Belle prise de vue avec une MAP sur les antennes. Merci

You can never have too much of a good thing, and this is as usual, very good.
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.

Hello Greg,
Excellent capture of the butterfly.Colors,contrast,framing,BG and composition are wonderful.

Hi Greg

Have been out of range for internet connection over the last few days. Been in a remote area of New Zealand called The Catlins, so now it is time for me to catch up on what has been happening.

Excellent shot. Well done on everything here. Thanks. -)

Nastepne BDB zdjecie :-)
Piekny motyl, kolory, kadr i ostrosc.
