Hi Horia. A very fine close up of the two butterflies. Both taken with fine detail and natural colours. They stand out so well from the plain green BG. well taken TFS.

Gorgeous blurred BG.

Hi Horia,

Another gem with these two butterflies on the one flower. A fantastic macro with wonderfully deep rich colors and superfine details. The green background is absolutely perfect and enhances the three subjects. I love the flower too!

Hi Horia,

Excellent macro of the two butterfly, the détails and sharpness are great.
A pretty flower sharing, not obvious because they do not share in general.
But you will be able, fortunately is not the rule.
A superb week.

Hello Horia,
Very pleasant to have two species on the same small thistle-head. These flowers are so attractive for insects! Magnificent Maniola jurtina which attracts the interest on it, but I have to say that I like Aphantopus a lot too, because we don't see it so often in my region. Very striking and shiny picture. Well seen.
Kind regards

Horia, this is a great shot of the butterfly. Nice job. Thanks for commenting on my green heron with fish. Have a great day, Bill

Hello Horia,
really an excellent view of these two butterflies. How sharp and how well detailed they are. Congratulations for wonderful display of skills in capturing nature.
Well done and this is a pleasant composition indeed.


Buna Horia,
Beautiful pair MF, top class colors, sharpness and background blur. Everything's fine - except for the crop a bit. It's a bit narrow on the left side while there's a little too much empty space on the right. Otherwise a fantastic job.
Tfs, friendly regards, László

hello Horia

great timing to shoot this photo, with fine POV, superbly focused
with great sharpness and details, beautifully blurred background, TFS
